The next "Ladoga" has arrived on the Amur gas processing plant

The eighth gas pumping unit (GPU) "Ladoga" was delivered to the construction site of the Amur gas processing plant. Now it is being installed on the fourth production line. The first 7 units have already been installed, and the stage-by-stage preparation for commissioning is underway.

GPU "Ladoga" is the key component of all six booster compressor stations. Each of them is equipped with two such units. After extracting valuable fractions from the raw gas for further processing in Russia, GPU “Ladoga” will compress the purified methane for further supply through the Eastern route.

Gas pumping units operate reliably at low temperatures and seismicity up to eight points. High-tech gas pimping units were manufactured at one of the largest power engineering enterprises in Russia “REP Holding” JSC (Saint-Petersburg). More than 8 thousand kilometers to the Amur GPP site, the multi-ton cargo is transported in special railway containers, maintaining the constant temperature + 5 ° C.

Gazprom's Amur gas processing plant will become one of the world's largest natural gas processing plants with a capacity of 42 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The plant will consist of six production lines, with the first two planned to be commissioned in 2021. In addition to purified methane, the GPP's commercial products will include ethane, propane, butane, pentane-hexane fraction, and helium.
The investor and customer of the Amur GPP construction project is “Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk” LLC (part of Gazprom Group). Construction management is carried out by “NIPIGAZ” JSC, the leading Russian center for design, supply, logistics and construction management.
