Offshore staff

MOSCOW – Preparations continue for the Shtokman gas/condensate project in the Barents Sea, according to Gazprom.

Phases 2 and 3 design and exploration programs are under way. Front-end engineering and design documents have been compiled for the offshore facilities in line with international standards, and engineering surveys are at the final stage.

Preparation of the project documents in compliance with Russian standards is close to completion. These documents will be submitted for review in 2013.

Tender documents have also been prepared ahead of bids next year to design an onshore LNG plant, with capacity of 30 MM tons/yr. This will be built in the Orlovka River valley near the Teriberka settlement.

Additionally, Gazprom has submitted for environmental review engineering documents connected to the sea port and the LNG storage facility in Teriberka Bay.

The Shtokman field is in the Russian sector of the Barents Sea, with C1 reserves of 3.9 tcm (138 tcf) of gas and 56.1 MM tons of gas condensate. Gazprom Neft Shelf holds the gas and gas condensate exploration and production license.
