Linde bags major LNG contract in Russia

17 February 2017

The Linde Group has recently been selected by Gazprom and Project EPC contractor SRDI Oil & Gas Peton as the licenser for a mid-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) production, storage and shipment complex in Portovaya, located in Russia at the Baltic Sea. The plant will liquefy natural gas coming from the nearby compressor station which is part of Gazprom’s Nord Stream pipeline.

Gazprom’s Portovaya LNG Project is  jointly developed with the Russian engineering holding Peton, and has a yearly capacity of around 1.5 MT LNG.
The plant will use Linde's LIMUM® technology, a multi-stage mixed refrigerant process . Under the contract with Peton, Linde will perform basic engineering for the process plant and supply the equipment and related bulk material for the cryogenic units of the plant. Both companies are already successfully cooperating on other projects like the Amur Gas Processing Plant (Amur GPP).

Linde’s Engineering Division has experience across the entire natural gas processing chain, from proprietary process technology to manufacturing specialised, tailor-made cryogenic equipment. This experience is complemented by Peton’s experience in the design and construction of turnkey projects in Russia.
