“REP Holding” will manufacture the equipment for the LNG plant in the Leningrad Region

“REP Holding” signed the contract with LLC Technological Engineering Holding “NIPI NG Peton”, the general contractor for the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on the compression station “Portovaya” in the Leningrad Region. Within the frames of the contract, the Holding will construct and supply to the object two gas compressor units GPA-32 “Ladoga”.

The equipment of "REP Holding" will be installed on one object of the complex for the production, storage and shipment of liquefied natural gas. The gas-turbine unit will be operated as a drive for the mixed refrigerant centrifugal compressors, which are manufactured by the Japanese manufacturer and, thus, participate in the technological chain of liquefying natural gas.

The manufactured equipment will be integrating tested on the production site of the Holding – “Nevskiy Zavod”, after which it will be supplied to the object. The delivery of the units is planned for the second quarter of 2018.

This is not the first LNG project, which is realizing with the participation of “REP Holding”. In 2016, the company concluded the contract for delivery of the mixed refrigerant centrifugal compressors for LNG “Vysotsk”, within the frames of the contract on the Holding enterprise the first mixed refrigerant centrifugal compressor was designed and manufactured in Russia. At the present moment, the equipment is passing the factory tests.
The LNG project on the compression station “Portovaya” was developed and is being realized by the order of PJSC “Gazprom” to provide the autonomic gasification for consumers of LNG in the Kaliningrad region. The complex will include 45 different buildings and structures with a service life - 25 years. It is planned that the capacity of the plant will be 1.5 million tons per year of LNG. The LNG complex will use gas surplus, which is not intended for the export market, as well as the compressors resource stockpile on the compression station “Portovaya”.

The compression station “Portovaya” is located in the Leningrad region and is the entry point on the northern shore of the Gulf of Finland, from where the gas enters to the main gas pipeline of the Nord Stream.

The compression station “Portovaya” is the most powerful compressor station in the world, its total capacity is 366 MW, working pressure is 220 atmospheres, the transportation distance is over than 1200 km.
