Russia’s Gazprom launches production at new Arctic gas site
Unlike some other Arctic projects in Russia, the gas will be pumped in the country's pipeline system.
Russia’s Gazprom said on Tuesday it had started production at the Semakovskoye gas field in the Russian Arctic with gas being pumped into the country’s national supply system.
Gazprom said output would be 7.5 billion cubic meters per year during the first phase of the project.
The new field is in the Yamal-Nenets region and is located partly on land and partly offshore in the Gulf of Ob.
