The leaders of The Linde Group and Gazprom met at the latter’s headquarters in Moscow yesterday to address cooperation issues in the ongoing Amur gas processing plant (GPP) project.
Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Wolfgang Büchele, CEO of The Linde Group convened at Gazprom’s headquarters in Russia, where they discussed both continuing and future collaborations.
A press release vaguely stated that the manufacturing of the core equipment for the first start-up complex of the Amur GPP project continues, whilst the launch the construction of the second start-up complex is planned for the near future.
It is understood that the meeting also touched upon potential collaborations in the field of liquefied natural gas (LNG) production.
When completed, Amur GPP will include the world’s largest helium (He) production facility as well as being one of the largest plants in the world, producing up to 42 billion m3 of natural gas per year.
In the Amur GPP development, the Tier One corporation is the supplier of all core process equipment used in the site’s cryogenic recovery of He. The agreement will also see Linde develop the engineering documentation for cryogenic gas separation facilities.
The plant forms part of Gazprom’s supply of Russian gas to China via the ‘Power of Siberia’ pipeline from eastern Siberian gas fields, and will be built in five phases ending in 2024.
Dr. Wolfgang Büchele, CEO of Linde, travelled to Gazprom’s Russian headquarters to meet with the company’s Chairman, Alexey Miller, to discuss the cooperation agreement of the Amur GPP Project.
The Linde Group has been selected by Gazprom Pererabotka Blagoveschchensk, and its general contractor NIPIgas, as the licenser for cryogenic gas separation technology at the Amur Gas Processing Plant (Amur GPP), in the far east of Russia.
The leaders of The Linde Group and Gazprom met in St. Petersburg, Russia, yesterday, in order to review the progress of the Amur Gas Processing Plant (GPP) construction project.
