START OF YAMAL LNG - 3
NOVATEK - PAO NOVATEK ("NOVATEK" and/or the "Company) announced that its joint venture Yamal LNG has commenced initial production of LNG at the plant's third LNG train. The total nameplate capacity of all three LNG trains is 16.5 mmtpa, or 5.5 mmtpa per LNG train.
"We have successfully launched all three LNG trains at our flagship Yamal LNG project according to our revised early launch schedule clearly confirming the uniqueness of Yamal LNG in the global LNG industry," noted NOVATEK's Chairman of Management Board Leonid Mikhelson, "We have not only launched all three technological trains on budget, but have launched the third LNG train more than one year ahead of the planned original schedule. This fact is unprecedented for the industry plagued by massive cost overruns and project delays. We have transformed NOVATEK into a global gas player and obtained the unique experience of design and construction of Arctic LNG projects. We will use this experience implementing our future LNG projects in this prolific hydrocarbon resource basin. The innovative fourth LNG train at Yamal LNG will be based on NOVATEK's proprietary liquefaction technology called "Arctic Cascade" and will utilize Russian-manufactured equipment".
