Vysotsk LNG hits production milestone

Novatek’s medium-scale plant in Russia’s Baltic Sea port of Vysotsk has produced its one millionth ton of LNG since it launched operations less than two years ago.

Since April 2019, Cryogas-Vysotsk has dispatched more than 200 LNG carriers and 1,200 trucks to a diverse geography including Finland, Sweden, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Estonia, Poland and Spain, according to Novatek.

In addition, the project supplied more than 80 trucks to the Russian domestic market as part of Novatek’s commercial activities to provide LNG for the consumers in the Murmansk region and the company’s network of fueling stations.

“Cryogas-Vysotsk has a broad and diverse geography of customers as this important project serves the entire Baltic region clean-burning natural gas needs amid tightening environmental requirements for marine and automotive fuels,” Novatek’s chief executive and Russian billionaire Leonid Mikhelson said.

The Vysotsk facility has a capacity of 660 thousand tons of LNG per year. Its infrastructure includes a 42,000 cbm LNG storage tank but also an offloading berth designed to handle carriers with a capacity of up to 30,000 cbm.

The independent LNG producer operates the facility with a 51 percent share while Gazprombank holds the rest.
