Gazprom starts up Russia’s first FSRU
10 January, 2019
Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom held a commissioning ceremony for an offshore gas receiving terminal and a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) in the Kaliningrad region.
The Marshal Vasilevskiy FSRU was put into operation on Tuesday 8 January to boost the energy security of the region with an alternative gas supply option.
Capable of storing 174,000 cubic metres of liquefied natural gas, Russia’s only FSRU will also provide up to 2.7bn cubic metres of natural gas to the Kaliningrad region per year.
