MOSCOW (Reuters)—Russia's Novatek has provisionally set December 8 as the official launch date for its Yamal LNG plant, according to two Reuters sources.

Novatek's partners on the project are France's Total, the China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) and China's Silk Road Fund. The project, on the Yamal Peninsula above the Arctic Circle, will be Russia's second LNG plant after Sakhalin-2 on the Pacific island of Sakhalin.

At full capacity, the Yamal facility will be able to produce 16.5 MMtpy of liquefied natural gas (LNG), which it will ship to Europe and Asia. The facility is being built in three phases.

One of the sources received an invitation for a December 8 opening of phase 1, and an industry source confirmed the date. However, both sources said that the date may change, depending on the schedule of high-ranking officials expected at the event.

A Novatek spokesman said that December 8 could not be confirmed as the launch date. The company has said that it aimed to open the plant before the end of this year.

Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More

Register Now

Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?

Attend this webinar to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
  • Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures

Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
