    JSC Mezhregiontruboprovodstroy (MRTS) has been appointed by RF Government as the sole contractor for several phases of the project on construction of the Utrenny terminal for liquefied natural gas and stable gas condensate. RF Government’s Decree No 1461-р dated 1 June 2020 has been published on the official internet portal for legal information.

    According to the document, State Corporation “Rosatom” is to ensure signing of a state contract with MRTS foe implementation of construction works at the following phases: 2, 3, 11, 13.1, 13.2, 15.

    The contract is to be signed by 1 June 2022.

    Involvement of subcontractors is possible with MRTS to implement at least 25% of obligations under the state contract (in terms of total worth).

    In mid-April, RF Government signed a Decree according to which the land-use planning scheme of the Russian Federation has been amended with the capacity of the Utrenny terminal (Sabetta port on the Gydan peninsula) increased from 21.6 million tonnes per year to 43.2 million tonnes per year.

    In April 2020, FSUE Hydrographic Company and dredging company Mordraga  signed an agreement on implementation of the project for reconstruction of the seaway canal in the Gulf of Ob where the NOVATEK’s Utrenny terminal is being built.

    The Utrenny terminal for liquefied natural gas and stable gas condensate included by the RF Government’s Decree into the port of Sabetta will be built on the western shore of the Gydan peninsula in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region, where berthing facilities of NOVATEK’s Salmanovsky (Utrenny) field are located today. The Project is based on the hydrocarbon resources of the Utrenneye field. The field with proved reserves of about 1.98 trillion cbm of natural gas and 105 million tonnes of liquid hydrocarbons is to become a resource base of Arctic LNG 2 project.

    The Utrenny terminal construction in Sabetta is among the tasks under the federal project 'Northern Sea Route’ aimed at expansion of the Northern Sea Route cargo flow to 80 million tonnes per year by 2024 in pursuance of RF President’s Decree dated 7 May 2018 No 204 “On national objectives and strategic tasks of the Russian Federation development till 2024”.

    NOVATEK’s Arctic LNG 2 project provides for construction of three LNG trains, with a capacity of 6.6 mtpa of LNG each, and at least 1.6 mtpa of stable gas condensate. The total LNG capacity of the three trains will be 19.8 mtpa. The project employs an innovative construction concept using gravity-based structures (GBS). OOO Arctic LNG 2 is the operator and owner of all the assets.
