A meeting between the Deputy Chairman of public corporation "Gazprom" Alexander Ananenkov and the Governor of the Murmansk region Dmitry Dmitrienko was held in Murmansk today.

The parties discussed prospects of the development of shipbuilding in the region. Taking into the account the intensive development of the Russian Arctic Shelf, they talked about the possibility of increasing the orders for ships and offshore platforms.

The parties stressed that the development of shipbuilding would have a positive impact on socio-economic situation in the Murmansk region and would favour the increase of workplaces.

Alexander Ananenkov informed Dmitri Dmitrienko about the process of Shtokman deposit development and Murmansk region prospects for gas supply.

Information:
A cooperation agreement between "Gazprom" and the Government of the Murmansk Region was signed in November 2005. The Agreement was extended in October 2009 by signing a cooperation agreement for the next five years (2010-2015).

On the territory of the region "Gazprom" is implementing a number of strategic projects. The projects of the major importance are integrating development of the Shtokman deposit and the construction of gas pipeline "Murmansk - Volkhov."

Gas condensate Shtokman district was discovered in 1988. It is located in the central part of the Russian sector of the Barents Sea, about 600 km north-east of Murmansk. According to the category C1, the reserves of the district are 3.9 trillion cubic meters of gas and 56 million tons of gas condensate: 3.8 trillion cubic meters of gas and 53.4 million tons of gas condensate are situated on the licensed area of ​​"Gazprom.

The district will become a resource base for the supply of Russian gas (both pipeline and obtained by using LNG technology) to the Atlantic Basin markets.

The pipeline "Murmansk - Volkhov" will provide the gas supply from the Shtokman district to the consumers of the North-West Russia and export supplies through the pipeline "Nord Stream". The pipeline’s length will be 1365 km, the annual production capacity will be up to 50 billion cubic meters (more accurate figures depend on the gas production in the Shtokman district). The gas pipeline will become the base for the first stage of gasification of the Murmansk region that is not currently gasified with natural gas.
