The Power of Siberia gaz pipeline

The Power of Siberia gaz pipeline

The Power of Siberia, cross-country gas pipeline system, is constructed within the large-scale Eastern Gas Program of PAO Gazprom. The Power of Siberia trunkline will be used to connect Yakutia (Chayandinskoye oil, gas and condensate field) and Irkutsk (Kovyktinskoye oil, gas and condensate field) gas production centers and transport gas to the Russian Far East regions, as well as 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. SGM Group is constructing the pipeline section of 1,126 km — from the Neryungri region (Republic of Sakha, Yakutia) to the border with the People’s Republic of China.

The large part of the route passes through low population areas difficult to access, thus the company is concurrently developing the infrastructure and building temporary bridges across the rivers of Siberia. The pipeline is constructed in the hard-rock mountainous territory with slope inclination of 33-34 degrees. In some areas blasting works are used.

During the project the import substitution program is effectively executed: the company engages domestic power stations, electronics, radio facilities, telecoms and other hi-tech equipment and spare parts.
