General director of Yakut gas processing complex (part of YATEC) Denis Solomatin who is also a deputy general director for strategic development at YATEC will present a paper at the CIS Gas Monetization 2018 conference on the company’s possible plans to increase their gas chemical capacities.
Construction of the new plant for deep gas processing, which project is currently being developed in the Yakutsk Fuel and Energy Company (YATEK), is planned on the base of the company’s gas resources.
According to the signed document, Haldor Topsoe will provide a license for the production of methanol from natural gas for a plant with a capacity of 5,000 tons/day, will execute the licensor’s base project, and act as a supplier of catalysts and parts of its own equipment.
Previously, Denis Solomatin reported that by the end of 2018 it is planned to complete the design and prepare documentation for state expertise. In 2019, the company intends to enter the construction site. Deliveries of the first batches of products will potentially begin in 2022.
“YATEK” supplies gas to the central region of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
The company’s share in the production of natural gas on the territory of the republic is about 86%, while the company provides 100% of the total needs of Yakutsk.
The natural gas reserves of the company’s C1 and C2 fields are estimated at 203 billion cubic meters, and oil and gas condensate at 14 million tons.
