A joint-venture between Technip, JGC Corporation and Chiyoda Corporation has commissioned Severn Glocon to provide 200 valves for the Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic.
This ground-breaking project is located in the estuary of the Ob River which is ice-bound for nine months of the year. It will require high-performance technologies to cope with the rigorous demands of LNG production in extremely cold conditions.
In time, Yamal LNG is expected to involve more than 200 wells and three LNG trains, each with a capacity of 5.5 million tons per year.
Yamal LNG is a joint-venture company owned by Novatek (60%) Total (20%) and CNPC (20%). Novatek is Russia’s second-largest independent natural gas producer and Total is leading the project.
