Gazprom secures co-operation for pipeline projects

Under the agreement, the Vologda Oblast Government will assist Gazprom in co-ordinating a wide range of work required for the execution of Gazprom’s projects and are obliged to prepare consumers for gas deliveries from the gasification facilities constructed by Gazprom.

Gazprom’s projects planned within the Vologda region include construction of sections of:

  • the 1,300 km Ukhta – Torzhok gas trunkline system
  • the 2,200 km Northern Tyumen Region – Torzhok gas pipeline
  • the 917 km Gryazovets – Vyborg gas pipeline
  • the 650 km Pochinki – Gryazovets gas pipeline.

Meanwhile, shipments of large diameter pipe for the construction of the Pochinki – Gryazovets Pipeline are now underway. TMK will ship 40,000 t of Volzhsky spiral welded, 56 inch pipe to Gazprom between December 2009 and Januray 2010.

TMK will also ship 20,000 t of 56 inch longitudinal welded pipe and 56 inch spiral welded pipe to be used by Gazprom in the construction of the Gryazovets – Vyborg Pipeline, which is the Russian onshore section of the Nord Stream Pipeline.

Construction of the Gryazovets – Vyborg gas trunkline remains on schedule, with 597 km of the 917 km long gas pipeline now complete, according to Gazprom Management Committee Deputy Chairman Alexander Ananenkov who recently chaired a meeting dedicated to the Gryazovets – Vyborg Pipeline in St Petersburg.

During the meeting Mr Ananenkov underlined that the Gazprom leadership would strictly monitor observance of deadlines in constructing the Portovaya compressor station.

The trunkline is projected to be completed in late 2010 and compressors at the Gryazovetskaya, Babaevskaya, Volkhovskaya, Elizavetinskaya and Portovaya compressor stations will be constructed and brought onstream between 2009 and 2011.

The gas pipeline will be commissioned in stages starting from 2011, and the nominal capacity 55 Bcm/d of gas, is projected to be achieved by late 2012.
