Moscow, April 12 - Neftegaz.RU. A working meeting between Alexey Miller, CEO of Gazprom, and Aldo Belloni, CEO of Linde, took place in Moscow on April 11, 2018.
The parties addressed the ongoing cooperation, placing an emphasis on the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) construction project involving Linde. It was noted that the project’s main phase was progressing on schedule.
Specifically, supply and assembly of Linde’s equipment is underway for cryogenic gas separation facilities of the GPP’s 1st production lines. Heavy parts of those facilities will be shipped via the Zeya River starting this summer.
Gazprom’s Amur GPP will be the largest GPP in Russia and one of the biggest in the world. It will have a design capacity of 42 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The plant will have 6 production lines, with the 1st two lines slated for commissioning in 2021. In addition to natural gas, the GPP will produce ethane, propane, butane, pentane-hexane fraction, and helium.
Linde supplies the Amur GPP with the core process equipment for cryogenic recovery of helium and valuable petrochemical substances from gas.
