Siemens Compressors For Arctic LNG-2 Project

Siemens previously supplied gas turbine generators and boil-off gas compressors for Novatek's Yamal LNG plant.

Siemens will supply compressor equipment for three liquefaction trains to Pao Novatek (Novatek) for its Arctic LNG-2 project. The scope of supply under the contract includes three feed gas compressors and six boil-off gas compressors.

“Siemens and Novatek have a successful working relationship as they supplied gas turbine generators and boil-off gas compressors for our Yamal LNG plant,” said Alexander Fridman, Novatek’s first deputy chair of the management board. Novatek is one of the largest independent natural gas producers in Russia. “Our next project, Arctic LNG-2, will utilize new technological solutions and employ domestic manufacturers. The supply contract envisages new prospects for localizing the compressor equipment fabrication for the LNG industry, which is consistent with our strategic aim of creating and developing an LNG Center of Excellence in Russia.”

The Arctic LNG-2 project is located offshore near the Gydan Peninsula in northern West Siberia. The project includes the construction of three LNG trains at 6.6 million tons per annum each, using gravity-based structure platforms.
