Gazprom to expand gas infrastructure in Sakhalin Region

A working meeting between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Valery Limarenko, Acting Governor of the Sakhalin Region, took place in St. Petersburg.

The parties reviewed the implementation of the Cooperation Agreement, noting the strategic nature of interactions between Gazprom and the Government of the Sakhalin Region. As part of the Eastern Gas Program, the Company is developing a major gas production center on the shelf of Sakhalin Island. In 2013–2018, Gazprom and its subsidiaries invested RUB 120.9bn in local infrastructure, particularly in pre-development operations within the Sakhalin III project. In 2019, capital investment in the region’s infrastructure is expected to total RUB 17.7bn.

At the meeting, particular attention was paid to gas infrastructure expansion in the Sakhalin Region. It was emphasized that 2018 marked the completion of a new gas pipeline stretching to Bereznyaki and Starorusskoye, the suburbs of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. A gas boiler house had been brought into operation in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

In 2019, the Company plans to perform construction and installation works on a gas pipeline branch, the Tymovskoye gas distribution station (GDS), and four gas pipelines running to such population centers as Tymovskoye, Voskresenovka, Voskhod, Zonalnoye, Kirovskoye, Krasnaya Tym, and Yasnoye in the Tymovsky District.

Preparations are underway for the construction of a gas pipeline branch, the Dolinsk GDS, and six gas pipelines in the Gorod Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk city district and in the Dolinsky and Makarovsky Districts of the Sakhalin Region. Four gas pipeline branches, four GDSs (Korsakov, Leonidovo, Makarov, and Yuzhnaya), and 16 gas pipelines are currently being designed.

Alexey Miller and Valery Limarenko agreed that Gazprom would update the Sakhalin Region’s General Scheme for gas supply and gas infrastructure expansion this year.
