The YAMAL LNG facility, located in Sabetta on the Yamal Peninsula in Siberia, Russia, is an integrated project including natural gas production, liquefaction, and shipping. The project consists of a LNG plant with an output capacity of approximately 16.5 million tpy, and utilises the South Tambey Field (with reserves are estimated at 926 billion m³) as a resource base. The plant is designed and commissioned by the consortium of Technip, JGC Corporation, and Chiyoda.
The Yamal LNG plant will feature three trains with total capacity of 16.5 million tpy of LNG. The first train was operational in December 2017, and full capacity will be achieved by 2021. Yamal LNG has commissioned 15 LNG icebreaker/tanker ships to export its gas.
The LNG plant is being built in three phases which are scheduled for 2017, 2018, and 2019. Because the location experiences a harsh environment with the difficult construction conditions of a polar climate, modularised construction methods are being used to reduce costs and speed up construction time. Sections of the construction were completed in module yards across Europe and Asia. Using this method enabled the contractors to prefabricate installations in locations where the working conditions were much better, and sections could be shipped to the Yamal project site for final installation.
