Gazprom says gas production from Kirinskoye to start this year

OAO Gazprom says it will launch commercial gas production this year from the Kirinskoye natural gas-condensate field (OGJ Online, Oct. 25, 2013).

The project status was discussed in a Feb. 4 working meeting in Moscow with Alexander Khoroshavin, governor of the Sakhalin region, and Alexey Miller, chairman of Gazprom’s management committee.

Gazprom said its capital investment in the Sakhalin region exceeded 250 billion rubles in the past 5 years and that it will spend 10 billion rubles this year.

The funds were primarily targeted on construction of the Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok gas transmission system, predevelopment of Kirinskoye (Sakhalin 3), and construction of a gas pipeline from the Kirinskoye onshore processing facility to the Sakhalin main compressor station of the gas transmission system.
