The Power of Siberia gaz pipeline

The Power of Siberia gaz pipeline

The Power of Siberia gas trunkline system is being built as part of the large-scale Eastern Gas Program of PJSC Gazprom. The Power of Siberia will connect the emerging Yakutsk (Chayandinskoye oil and gas condensate field) and Irkutsk (Kovykta gas condensate field) gas production centers and will ensure the transportation of produced gas to the Russian Far East regions and for export to China.

  • SGM Group’s pipeline section: 1,126 km
  • Pipe diameter: 1,420 mm
  • Pressure: 9.8 MPa
  • Design capacity: 38.5 billion cubic meters

The total length of the gas pipeline is about 3,000 km. The SGM Group has built a 1126-km-long section of the gas pipeline from the Neryungri district of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) to the border with the People’s Republic of China.

A significant part of the gas pipeline’s route was laid through sparsely populated, inaccessible territories, in off-road conditions, and therefore infrastructure was built along; temporary bridges were laid across Siberian rivers. Construction was carried out in mountainous terrain with slopes made of rock and the slope angle of 33-34 °.

During the implementation of the Power of Siberia project, an import substitution program was actively implemented: domestic power plants, electronics, radio communications, telemechanics, and other high-tech equipment and components were used.
