Gazprom and SIBUR sign preliminary contract for ethane fraction supplies from Amur GPP

Background

Gazprom’s Amur GPP will be the largest gas processing plant in Russia and one of the biggest in the world. It will have a design capacity of 42 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The plant will have six production lines with the annual capacity of 7 billion cubic meters each. Two process lines will come online in 2021, while the other four will be consecutively put in operation before the end of 2024. The GPP is expected to reach its design capacity by 2025. In addition to natural gas, it will produce ethane, propane, butane, pentane-hexane fraction, and helium.

SIBUR, in its turn, plans to build the Amur GCC, which will be technologically connected to the GPP, to process ethane, extract monomers, and subsequently produce polyethylene grades for the Russian and international markets in the amount of about 1.5 million tons per year.
