Russia yamal liquefied natural gas (LNG) project as the largest LNG project inside the Arctic Circle, since construction has attracted the eyes of the world. Recently, the science and technology journal reporter Russian nova company invited, revisit the scene of the yamal LNG project construction.
Progress in line with expectations issue production next year
Yamal LNG project assistant manager dmitry mona peskov told reporters in the project construction progress was introduced. At present, the yamal 51.3% to overall construction schedule, the first phase of production schedule was 64.4%, the production on schedule in 2017, the second phase and three phase of the production line will be in 2018 and 2019 respectively. After years of construction, yamal LNG project location don't harbor has established a perfect work and living areas, housing, electricity supply, heating, dining room, warehouse, roads, and entertainment facilities. At present, the yamal LNG project has more than 220 contractors, site has more than 3000 technical equipment, more than 15000 workers, the peak number of workers is expected to reach 20000 people.
According to the data provided by the nova company, according to the American petroleum institute of petroleum resources management system (PRMS) measure, as of December 31, 2014, south temple don't Iraq field gas reserves of 926 billion cubic meters have been found. To May 1, 2016, 19 yamal project block 50 in 208 relief Wells completed mining, can meet the production requirements of 86% first phase of the production line.
In terms of project main body construction, 75.3% of the total construction schedule for 4 large LNG storage tanks, to November, 2016, of which two storage tanks will be completed and complete the final testing before use; Power plant construction has been completed 60.2%, with 1 to 4 gas turbine generator has been installed, 2016 years a generator set will be put into use; First phase of the production line approach span all of the foundation has been completed, the main equipment are in place, including low temperature heat exchanger, compressor matching two liquefaction have been installed.
Module way construction of SBC important role
"Module" is the yamal LNG project site with the highest frequency vocabulary. Because Mr Don't harbor a cold climate, nearly nine months throughout the year is winter, the lowest temperature of minus 40 degrees Celsius, in order to shorten the construction period and save construction cost, including two LNG finished product transportation berths, most of the buildings are all adopt the mode of modular construction.
According to introducing, yamal LNG project a total of nearly 500 kinds of module, including simple modules about 360, 111 high technology complex module, respectively to the 10 contractor production, one of the seven from China, the remaining three from Indonesia. At the end of April, by China offshore oil engineering co., LTD. Construction project in the package, two separate weighs 7200 tons and 7200 tons of important modules in Qingdao the smooth completion of shipment, this is also the biggest LNG project the yamal heaviest two modules show that Chinese companies in the long-term development of the LNG equipment manufacturing. Mona said, Chinese contractors finished module production task efficiently with high quality, become the key to safeguarding the smooth progress of the yamal LNG project.
The north waterway cargo capacity to support the early show
Because is located in the Arctic Circle, Mr Don't harbor is very limited, land and air transport conditions of the north channel become yamal LNG project engineering transport module, material supply and future LNG products the main way of transportation. Krakow, mona, in 2015 Mr Don't harbor communist movement to more than 300 ten thousand tons of cargo, including seven of the first phase of the production line module, which fully prove and test the reliability of the north channel logistics chain; In 2016, is expected to have 79 module to the engineering field, including the part of the second phase and three phase of the project module; Transport will be built by 2017 LNG finished product wharf. Predictably, thanks to the yamal LNG project put into production, the north waterway freight potential will be further play.
