Background

Gazprom is constructing an LNG import, storage and regasification terminal on the coast of the Baltic Sea. The terminal will be able to receive up to 2.7 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The FLNG terminal will be connected to existing gas pipeline.[1]

It is planned to be operational in late 2017.[2]

The terminal was inaugurated in January 2019.[3] It is moored at a breakwater that is 5km north of Priboy, Russia, and is connected to the mainland by a pipeline.[4] Gazprom plans to use the FSRU to transport gas from the Portovaya LNG Terminal near Leningrad.
