Gazprom to start commercial gas production from the Kirinskoye field in 2014

Gazprom, the Russian global energy company, revealed in a meeting that it would be starting commercial gas production from the Kirinskoye field in 2014. The capital investments will be around RUB 10 bn.

 

Gazprom hosted the meeting between Alexey Miller, chairman of the company's Management Committee and Alexander Khoroshavin, governor of the Sakhalin Region. 

The company will carry out the development of the gas branch and the Nogliki gas distribution station (GDS).  It will also be involved in constructing inter-settlement gas pipelines, which connects the Nogliki GDS with the Nogliki gas distribution point (GDP) and the Nogliki GDS with the Nysh settlement.

 

Gazprom also introduced plans to create a natural gas vehicle (NGV) fuel market in the Sakhalin Region. Furthermore, it intends to build a compressed natural gas (CNG) CNG filling station in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the first one to exist in the region. 

A noticeable amount of capital investment in the Sakhalin Region has been provided by Gazprom, which has surpassed RUB 250 bn over five years (between 2009 and 2013).

 

The funds were primarily used for the construction of the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok GTS, pre-development of the Kirinskoye gas and condensate field as well as the construction of a gas pipeline from the onshore processing facility of the Kirinskoye field to the Sakhalin main compressor station of the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok GTS.  

Miller and Khoroshavin also covered the concern over gas supply to the Sakhalin Region. Between 2008 and 2013, Gazprom provided over RUB 3bn for these purposes. As a result of their investment, the gasification level of the Sakhalin Region went up from 24.5 per cent to 33.6 per cent.
