Chernomorsky LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG export terminal along the Black Sea in Russia.[1]


The terminal will be located in along the Black Sea in Russia, but the precise location is unknown.

Project Details

  • Owner: Gazprom[1]
  • Parent company: Gazprom
  • Location: along the Black Sea in Russia[1]
  • Coordinates: (approximate)
  • Type: Export[1]
  • Capacity: 0.5 - 1.5 mtpa[1]
  • Cost: 0.5-2 billion USD[2]
  • Status: Proposed[1]
  • Start Year: 2025[1][3]

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


According to Gazprom, the proposed Chernomorsky LNG facility is to be built near a Russian Black Sea port and fed with gas from the existing trunkline network; the facility is projected to produce between 500,000 and 1.5 million tonnes per year of LNG.[1]

Chernomorsky LNG may be built by as early as 2025, according to Gazprom, although some sources report that this is an overly optimistic assessment.[1] The terminal's main focus will be high-value LNG spot sales, such as ship bunkering and small scale LNG deliveries, to target locations with limited or no access to pipeline gas.[3]
