Today in Saint Petersburg Alexander Ananenkov, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee held a meeting dedicated to engineering and construction of the Ukhta – Torzhok, Pochinki – Gryazovets, Gryazovets – Vyborg, SRTO – Torzhok gas pipelines and main compressor stations in Northwestern Russia as well as the expansion of the Gryazovets gas hub.

Taking part in the meeting were Yaroslav Golko, Member of the Management Committee, Head of the Investment and Construction Department, heads and experts from Gazprom's specialized structural units and subsidiaries as well as engineering and contracting companies.

The meeting participants noted a high pace of activities on the expansion of gas transmission capacities in Northwestern Russia.

Linepipe loopings construction is carried on at the Gryazovets – Vyborg gas pipeline. Construction and installation activities are close to completion at the Volkhovskaya CS, the gas pumping equipment is being prepared for commissioning. Startup operations are underway at the Elizavetinskaya and Babaevskaya CSs.

346.8 kilometers of the Pochinki – Gryazovets linear part have been welded and trenched since early 2011. Taking into account 300 kilometers built last year, it is almost 100 per cent of the gas pipeline length. Testing of 70 per cent of block valve stations has been completed, hydraulic testing of constructed gas pipeline sections is underway. Construction and installation activities are carried on at the Vyaznikovskaya CS. The Ivanovskaya and Lukoyanovskaya CSs are being commissioned.

Construction of the Sindorskaya, Urdomskaya, and Nyuksenitskaya CSs that will make part of the SRTO – Torzhok gas pipeline is underway.

Previously, Gazprom's expert group headed by Alexander Ananenkov visited the Portovaya CS construction site located on the Baltic Sea coast near Vyborg, Leningrad Oblast.

Currently, testing “under load” of the gas treatment unit to feed gas into Nord Stream is completed. The feeding is scheduled for this September and constitutes a necessary process stage before commissioning of the gas treatment and gas compressor units that will provide for gas supply to consumers.

Installation of the gas treatment and gas compressor units with the total capacity of 210 MW has been finished.

Based on the meeting results, specialized structural units, subsidiaries and contracting agencies were given the tasks aimed at timely implementation of the projects in Northwestern Russia.
