Gazprom projects first LNG to Kaliningrad region in late 2017

OAO Gazprom is projecting late 2017 for an LNG terminal on the Baltic Sea coast in the far-western region of Kaliningrad, between Poland and Lithuania.

Several locations are being considered. Gazprom said the output would be at least 9 million cu m/day. The regasification terminal will be linked with the existing gas pipeline near the Kaliningradskoye underground storage system.

Gazprom said the “investment rationale” for the LNG terminal will be completed in 2014.

The Kaliningrad region will also be affected by the “accelerated development” of underground storage facilities in salt caverns. “The number of tanks is to be gradually increased from 2 to 14,” Gazprom said. Working gas capacity by 2025 is expected to be 800 million cu m.

Gazprom in September commissioned Phase 1 of the Kaliningradskoye underground storage facility with working gas capacity of 52 million cu m.
