Russia’s PJSC Gazprom, through a contractor, has let a contract to Linde AG, Munich, to provide licensing for a midscale LNG production, storage, and shipment complex in Portovaya, Russia, at the Baltic Sea.

As part of the contract awarded by SRDI Oil & Gas Peton LLC—Gazprom’s general contractor partner for the Portovaya LNG project—Linde will deliver basic engineering, equipment, and related bulk material for the plant and its cryogenic units, which will be equipped with the service company’s proprietary LIMUM technology, Linde said.

The 1.5-million tonne/year LNG plant will process natural gas arriving from the nearby Portovaya compressor station (CS) on Gazprom’s Nord Stream gas trunk line (OGJ Online, Oct. 9, 2012).

Linde disclosed neither the value nor duration of the contract.

Gazprom previously let a contract to Linde to provide technology, engineering, and equipment supply for subsidiary OOO Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveshchensk’s 49 billion-cu m/year grassroots Amur natural gas processing plant currently under construction near Svobodny in Russia’s far-east Amur region (OGJ Online, Jan. 21, 2016).
