Gazprom, a Russia gas giant, plans to build a plant for low-tonnage production of liquefied natural gas in the Russian region of Yaroslavl, according to the gas holding.
The head of Gazprom, Alexey Miller, and acting Governor of the Yaroslavl region, Dmitry Mironov, signed a program of gas supply development and gasification of the region for the period until 2021.
“The parties have agreed on the construction in the Yaroslavl region of a plant for low-tonnage production of liquefied natural gas for autonomous gasification and the use as a motor fuel”, — the company’s message reads.
Gazprom plans to build gas pipelines with a total length of about 430 km and one gas distribution station in the region. This will create conditions for the gasification of 41 settlements in 10 districts of the Yaroslavl region. The regional government, in its turn, will ensure the construction of gas distribution networks.
