Obsky LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Russia.
The precise location remains to be determined (TBD), but it will be somewhere in the Yamal-Nenets region of Russia.
- Owner: Novatek
- Location: Yamal-Nenets region of Russia
- Coordinates: TBD
- Type: Export
- Capacity: 5.0 mtpa
- Status: Proposed
- Start Year: 2025
Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day
In January 2021, Novatek expected to make a final investment decision (FID) on the 5 million tonnes per year (mtpa) Obsky LNG terminal sometime in 2021, having postponed it from 2020. The Upper Tiuteyskoye and West Seyakhinskoye fields will provide gas to the planned LNG plant.
In May 2021, Novatek announced that they were further delaying the FID until 2022 and the start-up date until 2025 or later after Novatek was reported to have had difficulties implementing its patented gas liquefaction process, Arctic Cascade, using Russian-made compressors.
