Russian Natural Gas Extraction

Russian Natural Gas Extraction

 

How does natural gas go from fields in the far eastern island Sakhalin to the system of gas pipeline ” Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok “?
The deposits of the Sakhalin shelf are main resource base.The Kirinskoye field has reserves at about 162.5 billion cubic meters of gas and 19.1 million tons of gas condensate . The system of gas transportation had started to work in  October 2013 when the first portion of the test gas was injected to the gas pipeline system ” Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok .” The projected level of gas production is 5.5 billion cubic meters per year.
The peculiarity of this field  is under water. All equipment is located at the bottom  at a depth of 90 meters. In Russian practice this method of extraction is used for the first time . Now let’s follow the path of the gas from the field to the end user.

Indeed, the pictures can’t convey this but it is huge. The plane can transport 700 passengers!
