Russia’s Gazprom to build small-scale LNG plant in Kemerovo

Russian gas giant Gazprom is looking to build a small-scale liquefaction plant in southwestern Siberia.

The plant would be located in the Kemerovo region, also known as Kuzbass.

Its output would help convert mining equipment to LNG and to replace coal fuel in the region, particularly in the Sheregesh ski resort, Gazprom said in a statement.

Moreover, the small-scale plant would get methane from the coal formations of the Southern Kuzbass group’s coal fields, Gazprom said. Gazprom Dobycha Kuznetsk holds the the subsurface use license.

State-owned Gazprom is currently conducting geological exploration at Naryksko-Ostashkinskoye, one of the CBM fields of the group.

The produced CBM would go the small-scale LNG plant to be located near the production site. The facility would have an initial capacity of 26,000 tons per year but with room for further expansion.

Gazprom chief Alexei Miller signed several deals regarding the project on Friday with the Governor of the Kemerovo Region, Sergey Tsivilev, Russian Minister of Energy Nikolai Shulginov but also Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade.

The agreements include the development of equipment and technologies for the construction of wells, production of gas from CBM reservoirs, and subsequent processing and liquefaction of this gas in Kuzbass, Gazprom said.
