ExxonMobil sees Russian LNG plant's capacity at 6.2 million T/year

MOSCOW (Reuters) - U.S. major ExxonMobil and Russian energy company Rosneft expect their future joint project to produce more than 6.2 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas per year, Interfax news agency quoted an ExxonMobil manager as saying.

ExxonMobil is pushing ahead with efforts to develop its $15 billion Far East Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project with Rosneft despite being forced to exit some joint ventures in Russia due to Western sanctions.

Earlier this year Exxon invited companies including China National Petroleum Corporation’s [CNPET.UL] engineering arm to bid for construction contracts by October, sources with knowledge of the matter said.

A final investment decision is due in 2019, they said.

Exxon and Rosneft have also held discussions about feeding gas from Sakhalin-1 fields into a planned third production unit at an existing LNG plant run by Gazprom and Shell on Sakhalin island.

GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium

View On-Demand

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
