Gas project in the Arctic region

Gas project in the Arctic region

Context and challenges

This project is integrated, encompassing natural gas production, liquefaction, and shipping. It is also one of the most significant industrial undertakings in the Arctic region.
MPH, through its local subsidiary in Russia MPH Vostok, was tasked with working on the project to construct LNG modules for a liquified natural gas (LNG) plant with an output capacity of around 16.5 million tons per year. Production on the first of three trains began in December 2017. Later, the project shipped the first LNG cargo containing 170,000 cubic meters of liquified gas. Shipment from the second LNG train started in August 2018. In November 2018, the project commenced production of its third LNG train.
