Background

Vladivostok LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Primorye, Russia.[4] Construction of the 5 mtpa Train 1 was originally scheduled to be complete in 2018 and the 8.6 mtpa Train 2 in 2020.

Global Risk Insights reported in October of 2017 that the project was delayed until 2020 due to a lack of funding and low fuel prices.[5]

In July 2018 Gazprom reiterated its commitment to developing the Vladivostok LNG project and the Shtokman gas field as two key elements of an expanded export portfolio.[6]

In March 2021, Gazprom reaffirmed to Russian authorities that the capacity of Vladivostok LNG in the country's far east is not expected to exceed 1.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) as compared with a previously declared 10 mtpa. The plant will receive feed gas from Gazprom-led developments at the Kirinsky block offshore Sakhalin Island via the existing Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok Gas Pipeline. The project appears to be aiming for 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]

As of September 2021, lack of investment capital and low Asian gas prices continued to hinder development of the Vladivostok terminal.[7]
