  • Location: Arkhangelsk region of Russia[1]
  • Coordinates: 64.550910, 40.512047 (approximate)
  • Type: Export[1]
  • Capacity: 0.12 mtpa[1]
  • Status: Proposed[1]
  • Start Year:2024[3]

Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day

Background

The LNG produced at the terminal is expected to be used to develop the fuel and energy complex of the Arkhangelsk Region and related industries. The developer's agreement with the Region's government cites the renovation of existing diesel power plants in the remote areas of the Mezen and Leshukonsky districts to run on LNG, and switching about 20 municipal and private boiler plants from running on expensive fuel oil, diesel fuel, and coal to LNG.[1]
