Gazprom adds capacity at Bovanenkovskoye field on Yamal peninsula

OAO Gazprom has added production and transmission capacity at Bovanenkovskoye natural gas-condensate field on the Yamal peninsula in northern Russia.

At a Jan. 18 ceremony, Gazprom said 88 operating wells were added, bringing the total to 391. Two booster compressor stations with a total capacity of 160 Mw also were brought online. Peak output is now 264 million cu m/day (cmd), up from 218 million cmd.

The field has two production facilities with a total design capacity of 90 billion cu m/year.

Gazprom also commissioned the 1,260-km Bovanenkovo-Ukhta 2 gas pipeline with a design capacity of 57.5 billion cu m/year, bringing combined capacity for both lines to 115 billion cu m/year. The first line was brought into operation in 2012.

Gazprom said it has plans in the medium term for a third production facility at Bovanenkovskoye and additional pipeline and compressor capacities to bring the field’s design capacity to 115 billion cu m/year.

“Gazprom’s main resource base is shifting northward to Yamal,” said Alexey Miller, Gazprom management committee chairman.
