Gazprom begins construction on CPECG facility in Russia

25 May 2021

Gazprom has broken ground on an ethane-containing gas processing complex (CPECG) in Russia’s Leningrad region.

According to the Russian state-owned gas producer, the CPECG is the first cluster of its kind in the world which brings together the capacities for gas processing, gas chemistry and liquefaction of natural gas.

Located near the Ust-Luga settlement, the complex will have two major enterprises.

The first will be an integrated complex for processing and liquefaction of natural gas (GPC). It will be operated by RusKhimAlyans, a joint venture between Gazprom and RusGazDobycha.

The second enterprise will be a gas chemical complex (GCC) that is affiliated technically with the gas processing complex. It will be operated by RusGazDobycha’s subsidiary Baltic Chemical Complex.

The gas processing facility will be able to process 45bn cubic metres per year, making it the largest of its kind in Russia and also in the world. It will also produce 13m tons of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year.

Gazprom said that nearly 18bn cubic metres per year of gas remaining after processing will be sent to the company’s gas transmission system.

The ethane-content natural gas to be used as feedstock for the gas processing complex will be sourced from the Achimov and Valanginian deposits in the Nadym-Pur-Taz region of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area. The gas will be procured from the Tambeyskoye field located in the Yamal Peninsula, which is expected to begin production in 2026.

Gazprom plans to have the gas transmitted through gas trunklines, which are allocated specially for ethane-containing gas.
