Russia’s Novatek to build small-scale LNG plant in Tula

Russia’s LNG exporter Novatek has signed a deal to build a small-scale LNG plant in the Tula region, south of Moscow.

Novatek said in a statement on Thursday it signed a cooperation deal with the governor of the region to implement the small-scale LNG project.

The agreement provides for the construction of a 126 ktpa small-scale LNG plant in the Tula region on the territory of the special economic zone “Uzlovaya”, it said.

Moreover, this LNG facility, the largest in the Central Federal District of Russia, will supply LNG as fuel for vehicles through an LNG fueling network and as an off-grid energy solution, according to Novatek.

“The use of LNG will improve the cost-effectiveness of transport operations, reduce the environmental footprint, enhance the reliability of power supply, and contribute to the economic development of Russian regions,” it said.

Novatek currently operates the large Yamal LNG project, the medium-scale Vysotsk facility, and is also building the Arctic 2 LNG terminal.

The firm is also working to develop the Murmansk LNG project and recently obtained a Russian patent for its proprietary technology called “Arctic Mix” for large-scale natural gas liquefaction using mixed refrigerants.

Novatek said it developed this LNG process technology to implement the company’s large-scale projects on gravity-based structures with a production capacity of 6+ mmtpa per LNG train.
