From March 31 to April 2, 2015 in Moscow, at the II International Congress “Russian LNG Congress 2015” organized by Vostock Capital, General Director of Gazprom Gas Fuel, Mikhail Likhachev, talked about infrastructure projects aimed at creating the value chain of LNG for use as motor fuel.
Today in Russia there are 7 small-tonnage complexes producing LNG. The resulting raw materials are exported, used for the implementation of pilot projects, or provided for the autonomous gasification of settlements not connected to pipeline gas. Gazprom Gas Fuel is working toward increasing the production and distribution infrastructure of LNG through the implementation of various development projects in areas such as the LNG refuelling project recently initiated in Tatarstan.
Other areas for consideration include Moscow and the Moscow Region, Kaliningrad and Sverdlovsk Region, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region, and Krasnodar region.
Likhachev explained existing and future transport corridors, as well as the potential of the adjacent areas, are important factors in the planning and implementation of new projects that will ultimately contribute to the creation of a nationwide network of small-tonnage production and consumption of LNG. The network will aid in the formation of international NGV corridors that connect Europe and Asia, the Baltic and the Black Sea.
“Infrastructure development will provide low-tonnage LNG consumption of natural gas as a vehicle fuel in all segments of transport, and formed on the basis of its NGV optimize logistics freight corridors and improve the efficiency of the transport system as a whole”, said Mikhail Likhachev.
“Development of small-scale LNG infrastructure will ensure that consumption of natural gas as a motor fuel in all transport segments, and optimize the formation of LNG corridors for freight transport as well as improve the efficiency of the transport system as a whole, “said Mikhail Likhachev.
