Italian oil and gas industry contractor Saipem has agreed to participate in a joint venture (JV) for the realisation of the Arctic LNG 2 project, for a share worth approximately $2.4bn (€2.2bn).

The JV includes Technip France, a subsidiary of oil and gas company TechnipFMC, and Russian gas services company NIPIgaspererabotka.

The project was awarded by Arctic LNG 2, a company formed by Russian natural gas provider Novatek and wholly-owned subsidiary Ekropromstroy. Novatek is the operator of the project with a 60% stake, with Ekropromstroy owning the remaining 40% stake.

The development on the Arctic LNG 2 project comprises the design, procurement, fabrication, construction, commissioning and start-up of three LNG trains, with a capacity of approximately 6.6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG and at least 1.6MTPA of stable gas condensate.

Saipem is currently designing and building the concrete gravity-based structures the trains will be installed on in the framework of a contract announced in December 2018.

The trains will be realised in the Russian Tazovsky district, located in the western part of the Gydan peninsula.
