Gazprom Supplying Gas From Kaliningrad FSRU
11.09.2022 By Ella Keskin - NEWS

November 9, 2022 [LNG Prime] – Gas giant Gazprom has completed tests at its 174,000-cbm FSRU Marshal Vasilevskiy off Russia’s Kaliningrad, located between Lithuania and Poland.

 

 

The firm said in a statement on Monday it had completed scheduled maintenance checks of the systems and equipment of the FSRU and the offshore LNG receiving terminal in the Kaliningrad region.

For about two weeks, the FSRU had been delivering regasified LNG to the gas transmission network for onward distribution to the regional consumers, according to Gazprom.

Russia’s only FSRU, Marshal Vasilevskiy, and the offshore LNG receiving terminal are “technically complex objects” and require period checks of their work in the climatic conditions of the Baltic Sea, especially in the autmn/winter period, Gazprom said.

Gazprom said that the FSRU receives LNG from its Portovaya LNG production, storage, and shipment complex in the Leningrad region.

The firm said it had launched commercial operations at the facility in September.

As previously reported by LNG Prime, the 170,000-cbm LNG carrier Pskov departed from the facility located near Russia’s Baltic Sea port of Vysotsk with the first cargo on September 13. The vessel delivered this shipment to Greece.

With the FSRU in Kaliningrad, Gazprom can ensure gas supplies to Kaliningrad in case of disruptions of pipeline gas supplies via Lithuania.

Gazprom said that, beyond the FSRU, another reliable source for the consumers in the region is the Kaliningradskoye underground storage facility, which was created in rock salt deposits by the company.

The state-owned firm added that it continues to expand the storage.
