Gazprom, Lukoil talk cooperation

Alexey Miller of Gazprom and Vagit Alekperov, President of LUKOIL, met in Moscow on Thursday.

They discussed the issues of cooperation while arranging the processing of associated petroleum gas (APG) from the northern group of LUKOIL-Komi fields at the Sosnogorsk gas processing plant (GPP) of Gazprom, the company said in a statement.

It was noted that the work was in progress for creating the required infrastructure to deliver gas to the GPP.

In particular, the construction of a gas branch from the Bovanenkovo – Ukhta gas trunkline system to the Pechora GDS-2 is nearing completion. The first gas delivery and pre-commissioning activities at the gas branch are scheduled for the second quarter of 2015, the statement said.

In addition, design & estimate documents were prepared for two gas distribution pipelines from the Krutyanskaya GDS.

The meeting also addressed gas supply from LUKOIL’s fields in the Bolshekhetskaya Depression and the Northern Caspian Sea.
