Ukhta-Torzhok 3 Gas Pipeline (Ухта - Торжок - 3) is a proposed natural gas pipeline in Russia.

Location

Running parallel to the Ukhta-Torzhok Gas Pipeline and Ukhta-Torzhok 2 Gas Pipeline, this pipeline will take gas from the hub of Ukhta and transport it southwest to Torzhok via Gryazovets. At Gryazovets, the pipeline will connect to the Gryazovets-Vyborg Gas Pipeline and run westward to Saint Petersburg and then feed into the Nord Stream Gas Pipeline which delivers gas onward to Western Europe.
