Gas Processing Complex within Ust-Luga Ethane-Rich Gas Processing Cluster is a joint project of Gazprom and RusGasDobycha aimed at the practical implementation of a new economic model for comprehensive monetization of hydrocarbon resources. The facility will be the largest natural gas processing complex and the largest producer of liquefied natural gas in Northwest Europe.
The future facilities comprise a gas processing plant, an LNG plant, and related transport infrastructure, including a logistics center forming part of product storage area, interconnecting pipe racks for product pipelines and an integrated marine shipment terminal.
The launch of the Complex will make it possible to increase Russian export of LNG and liquefied hydrocarbon gases. Production of ethane, which is in widely used in the domestic industry, will grow significantly. Combining LNG and ethane production in a single site significantly improves the economics and other performance indicators of the project, allows us to substantially mitigate resource and price risks.
