LUKOIL PUTS IN OPERATION A NEW POWER FACILITY IN KOMI
Friday, November 25, 2016
LUKOIL has put in operation the first stage of the power generation facility at the Usinskoye field in the Republic of Komi. The startup ceremony was attended by President of LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov and Head of the Republic of Komi Sergey Gaplikov.
The first stage of the facility has the installed capacity of 100 MW.
The new facility will provide for independent power supply to the Usinskoye field and fields of the Denisovskoye license area operated by LUKOIL-Komi. The operation of the facility will also increase volumes of associated petroleum gas utilization to generate electrical power for own needs.
The project was designed and executed by LUKOIL-Energoengineering, LUKOIL's wholly-owned subsidiary. Major equipment for the facility was supplied by Russian vendors. Innovative technologies were used at all stages of the construction process.
