Exports from the third train of the Yamal LNG project in Russia have commenced 12 months ahead of schedule. Total has announced the start of LNG exports now brings the Yamal plant to its full planned capacity of 16.5 million tonnes per year.
Furthermore, this start-up occurs one week after Yamal LNG has shipped its one hundredth LNG cargo.
“We are proud of the successful launch of all three LNG trains of the Yamal LNG project less than a year after the start-up of the plant. This constitutes an unprecedented achievement for the industry,” commented Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total. “The positive experience of Yamal LNG paves the way for further LNG developments alongside our strategic partner Novatek, including Arctic LNG 2, the next major development based on giant low costs resources in Russia’s far north.”
