The Turkish Stream and Power of Siberia gas pipelines are almost ready

Energy giant Gazprom reports that the construction of the Turkish Stream and Power of Siberia gas pipelines is nearing its logical conclusion. That is, by the end of construction and the commissioning of highways into commercial operation.

At the moment, 95% of the offshore section of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline has been built. And 1775 km. pipes are already laid on two threads. The construction of coastal infrastructure facilities in Russia was completed. Near Anapa (Krasnodar Territory), adjustment work is already underway, which will be completed before the end of 2018.

It should be noted that Gazprom has been building the Turkish Stream offshore section since May 2017. Its length along the bottom of the Black Sea from Russia to the Turkish coast is 930 km. As for the territory of Turkey itself, there is a construction of a specialized gas reception terminal near the village of Kıyıköy. So the completion of this gigantic construction project called “Turkish Stream” should take place on schedule. And both of his threads, with a capacity of 15,75 billion cubic meters. m. each, will be commissioned, as planned, by the end of 2019. The first line will give gas to Turkey, and the second - to the countries of Southern Europe (there will still be a land section 180 km long. to the border with the European Union).

In addition, Gazprom informed that 2064 km have already been laid. pipes of the “Power of Siberia” highway, which runs from Yakutia to the Chinese border. By the way, this is 95,5% of its length. Moreover, 90% ready underwater crossing over the river. Amur. It consists of two threads that are laid in two tunnels. At the same time, the construction of the Ataman compressor station on the Chinese border continues. At the same time, Beijing does not hide the fact that they are looking forward to the completion of the construction of the “Power of Siberia”. After all, China really needs gas.

Work is underway at the facilities of the Amur Gas Processing Plant under construction. And this industrial enterprise is extremely necessary for Russia. Since the gas produced in the fields of Eastern Siberia will be processed there.

So Gazprom is not only concerned about exports. A lot of work is being done for Russian gas consumers. For instance, completed gas pipeline and installation of equipment at the compressor stations "Khosheutovo", "Volnoe", "Kharabali", which distribute gas, is completed. It is simply necessary for a normal gas supply to the northern regions of the Astrakhan region.

    -Eh .., thousands of kilometers ... Russia is laying different pipelines and everything at its own expense ... -And then it will start pumping its gas at the price of "prime cost" ... -Then .., of course, Gazprom will "take" it all spent from our taxpayer population .. But ... what a benefit here ... for Russia ... -It's sad ...

    - Well, for that matter ..., then Russia should have strained and laid a pipeline through "both Koreas" and along the bottom of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk to Japan ..., and the second ... - from Sakhalin to Japan ...
    - These two pipelines (plus LNG) would really boost the Russian economy ...
    -And not these "remakes-pipelines" to Turkey and China ... -Russia to lay oil and gas pipelines to China ...- is like suicide ...
    - Yes, and to Turkey ... - not much "better" ...
    - Our descendants of Russia will be cursed ... if at all ... - if there is anyone to curse ...

      Russia should have strained and laid a pipeline through "both Koreas" and along the bottom of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk to Japan ..

      Through "two Koreas and along the bottom of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk" it will not work, too expensive ..., but through two Koreas and the Japanese one - it is quite possible. But it's still cheaper through Sakhalin ... The time will come - we will build it.
