PRE-COMMISSIONING OF ORENBURGSKOYE PIPELINE

January 03, 2017

Gazprom Neft has completed construction and begun pre-commissioning works on gas-transportation infrastructure at the Eastern section of the Orenburgskoe oil and gas condensate field. A gas pipeline with a maximum throughput capacity of 5.7 billion cubic meters will ensure supplies to the Orenburgskoe gas processing plant, part of the Gazprom group of companies. Gazprom Neft subsidiary Gazpromneft-Orenburg is operator of the project. The commissioning of the 50-kilometre 720-mm-diameter export gas pipeline will ensure the development of an effective system for using the increasing volumes of gas produced at the field. In expanding gas infrastructure at the Eastern section of the Orenburgskoe field Gazprom Neft plans, in 2017, to complete construction of a compressor station, which will make possible directing all gas produced at the Eastern section of the Orenburgskoe field to supply the gas processing plant, more than five billion cubic metres in total.
