Saipem has reached an agreement with Technip France SA and NIPIgaspererabotka to participate in the Joint Venture for the realisation of the Arctic LNG 2 project.

The project has been awarded by Arctic LNG 2, a company formed by Novatek JSPC (60%) and Ekropromstroy Ltd (40%). It comprises the detailed design, procurement, fabrication, construction, commissioning and start-up of three liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains, each with a capacity of approximately 6.6 million tons per year (MTPA), which will be installed on Concrete Gravity Based Structures (GBS). Saipem is currently designing and building the GBS in the framework of the contract already announced with the press release of December 19, 2018.

The new LNG trains will be realised in the Tazovsky district located in the autonomous administrative region of Yamal – Nenets, in the western part of the Gydan peninsula (Russian Federation).

The contract will be executed under lump sum and reimbursable basis. Saipem has been assigned a share of the project worth approximately EUR 2.2 billion.

Stefano Cao, Saipem CEO, comments, “Involvement in the works for the construction of the three trains for the Arctic LNG 2 project, following the awards of the contracts for the Gravity Based Structures with the same client and the LNG Mozambique Project with Anadarko, reaffirms Saipem’s strategic choice to consolidate its leadership across the entire natural gas value chain.”
