Gazprom’s Kubanskaya compressor station a ‘crucial part’ of Southern Corridor

OAO Gazprom said the Kubanskaya compressor station in Krasnodar “has become a crucial part” of its Southern Corridor gas transmission system in southern Russia.

“It will enhance the security of gas supplies to the Black Sea coast of the Krasnodar Territory as well as the Olympic venues,” said Vitaly Markelov, deputy chairman of the Gazprom management committee, at a dedication in the Ust-Labinsk district. “Later on, the compressor station will supply gas via the Southern Corridor to the South Stream gas export pipeline.”

The four gas compressor units at Kubanskaya each have 12 Mw of capacity.

The Southern Corridor GTS will be 2,506 km long, with throughput capacity of 63 billion cu m/year. The project plans on 10 compressor stations with a total capacity of 1,516 Mw. The system is due for completion in 2017 (OGJ Online, May 15, 2013).

Gazprom is constructing the South Stream gas pipeline, which will cross the Black Sea to the Bulgarian coast and supply southern and central Europe. Pipeline construction started near Anapa, Krasnodar, in December of 2012. The first string of the offshore line is to be commissioned in late 2015.
