The first foundation for the Amur #gas processing plant (GPP) was solemnly laid today in the Svobodnensky District of the Amur Region.

The ceremonial event was attended by Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation, and Alexey Miller, Chairman of the #gazprom Management Committee.

The Amur GPP has strategic importance for the Eastern #gas Program. The plant will be supplied via the Power of Siberia gas pipeline with multi-component #gas from the Yakutia and Irkutsk gas production centers that are being set up by Gazprom. The GPP will extract valuable substances, primarily ethane and helium, from #gas for the purposes of the petrochemical and other industries. The processed #gas will be then exported to China.

Site preparation works for a more than 850-hectare area are already completed, with a utility system in place. By laying the foundation for the plant, #gazprom launched the main phase of the construction project, namely the establishment of the key #gas processing facilities.

The Amur GPP will have six production lines, each of which will be an independent #gas processing facility with the annual capacity of 7 billion cubic meters. Two process lines will come online at the first start-up complex, while the other four will be consecutively put in operation later. The GPP will thus reach its design capacity of 42 billion cubic meters of gas per year, becoming the largest such plant in Russia and one of the biggest in the world. The plant will also include the world's largest helium production facility (up to 60 million cubic meters per year).

“In less than two years, we have successfully completed the initial construction of the Amur GPP, the largest and most advanced #gas processing plant in the country. Today, we launched the next crucial and essential stage. We laid the first foundation and will soon start installing the facilities that will be vital to the future plant,” said #alexeymiller.
