Obsky LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Russia.[1]


The precise location remains to be determined (TBD), but it will be somewhere in the Yamal-Nenets region of Russia.

Project Details

  • Owner: Novatek[1]
  • Location: Yamal-Nenets region of Russia[1]
  • Coordinates: TBD
  • Type: Export[1]
  • Capacity: 5.0 mtpa[1]
  • Status: Proposed[1]
  • Start Year: 2025[2]

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.[1] The Upper Tiuteyskoye and West Seyakhinskoye fields will provide gas to the planned LNG plant.[2]

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.[2]
