Yamal LNG to use BASF gas purification technology

Yamal LNG OAO will us BASF’s technology for removing carbon dioxide from natural gas, reported BASF.

Use of the technology, marketed under the Oase brand, is a prerequisite for LNG production. Yamal LNG is owned by Novatek OAO, 80%, and Total, 20% (OGJ Online, Oct. 6, 2011).

In October 2010, the Russian Federation approved the large-scale plan for LNG production development on the Yamal Peninsula. Yamal LNG, as a pilot project, provides for construction of an LNG plant with output of more than 15 million tonnes/year.

The plant will take feed from Yuzhno-Tambeyskoe field with proven and probable reserves as of Dec. 31, 2011, of 879 billion cu m. Transport infrastructure, including a seaport and an airport near Sabetta, northeast of Yamal, is to be built within the project.
