By Carmen 14 Oct 2021

Located in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug in Russia, the Yamal LNG liquefaction terminal is operated by Yamal LNG. The terminal started operations in 2017 and is owned by Novatek, China National Petroleum, TotalEnergies, and others.



The Yamal LNG liquefaction terminal sources gas from Tambeiskoye South (Yuzhno-Tambeiskoye) field.

With three trains, the Yamal terminal has an LNG production capacity of 16.5Mtpa (million tons per annum), which is expected to increase to 17.4Mtpa by 2030.



Approximately 101.21% of the installed capacity is committed through long-term contracts, which amounts to roughly 16.7Mtpa.



During the period 2021-2025, the Yamal liquefaction plant is expected to witness an estimated capex of $350m.
