LNG Gorskaya says it has the go-ahead from Rosmorrechflot, Russia’s Federal Marine and River Transport Agency, “to invest into the construction of a liquefied natural gas port in Saint-Petersburg.”
The project will be developed in three stages with the first stage starting up in 2018 and first sales expected in 2019. The second and the third stages are scheduled for development in 2019 and 2021, according to reports. Total capacity is to be nearly 2 billion cubic meters of LNG.
LNG Gorskaya says it’s ordered three 7,300-cubic-meter bunker vessels from Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corp via a contract valued at 5.67 billion rubles – nearly $88 million U.S. at current rates.
