Bovanenkovo-Ukhta III Gas Pipeline
|This article is part of the Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
Bovanenkovo-Ukhta III Gas Pipeline (Бованенково - Ухта - 3) is a proposed gas pipeline in Russia.
The pipeline would start in Bovanenkovo field, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomus Okrug, Russia and run to Ukhta, Komi Republic, Russia.
- Operator: Gazprom
- Length: 1,200 kilometers / 745.65 miles 
- Capacity: 69.00 billion cubic meters per year
- Gas source: Bovanenkovo gas field
- Status: Proposed
- Start Year: 2023
The proposed pipeline would be owned and operated by Gazprom. It would run parallel to the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta Gas Pipeline and Bovanenkovo-Ukhta 2 Gas Pipeline. In Ukhta, the pipeline would connect to the Yamal-Europe Gas Pipeline.
In November 2020, Gazprom carried out engineering and environmental surveys on the route of the proposed pipeline. The results of engineering and environmental surveys will be used to develop an environmental impact assessment (EIA) of the projected facilities and will serve as initial data in the development of environmental protection measures for the period of its construction and operation. The assessment was planned to be completed and submitted for government review during the 4th quarter of 2021. There was a tender for construction materials initiated by Gazprom in July 2021.
