Gazprom hits Portovaya LNG production milestone

Russian gas giant Gazprom has reached a production milestone at its Portovaya LNG complex in the Leningrad region.

According to a statement by Gazprom LNG Portovaya, the operator of the plant and Gazprom’s unit, the complex produced its first million tons of LNG in May since the launch in September 2022.

Gazprom’s Portovaya complex is a mid-scale plant able to produce about 1.5 million tons of LNG per year from two trains.

The 170,000-cbm LNG carrier Pskov, owned by Sovcomflot, loaded the first cargo in September last year from the 138,107-cbm Portovyy, which serves as a floating storage unit for Gazprom’s LNG export project located near Russia’s Baltic Sea port of Vysotsk.

DESFA’s Revithoussa LNG import facility in Greece received this first shipment from Portovaya LNG.

The plant liquefies natural gas coming from the nearby Portovaya compressor station, part of Gazprom’s closed Nord Stream pipeline.

It has a 42,000-cbm LNG tank. From the tank, the facility sends LNG via a 4 kilometers long pipeline, one of the longest cryogenic pipelines in the world, to the FSU, Gazprom LNG Portovaya said.

Besides sending LNG to vessels, it also loads trucks for use as a fuel for transport in Saint Petersburg, the firm said.
