Russia to standardize LNG processing and liquefaction
Russian giant Gazprom signed program for standardization of developing technologies and equipment in oil refining, petrochemistry, and LNG processing and liquefaction in St. Petersburg.
Gazprom said on Tuesday that the program particularly focussed on projects on gravity-based structures with LNG production trains and for gas carriers transporting LNG.
The program will be implemented in the period up to 2023. Under this document, uniform standards based on modern requirements will be developed and established at the national level.
The standards will govern the design and manufacturing of equipment and structural materials for medium- and large-scale LNG production and for petrochemical and oil and gas processing facilities.
