Siemens will deliver the key components for a power station that is going to
supply the future Yamal LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) production plant in
Northern Russia with electricity and heat. The Siemens scope of supply
comprises the design, manufacture, factory testing, delivery, installation and
commissioning of eight SGT-800 industrial gas turbines as well as nine step-up
transformers. Four of these turbines will additionally be equipped with waste
heat recovery units. The power plant will have an electrical output of 376
megawatts (MWe). The order has been placed by the Russian engineering company
Technopromexport (TPE), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rostec State
Corporation. TPE is an EPC company which is recognized as the winner for the
above project based on the results of the tender. Located onshore, in the
Arctic area of the Yamal Peninsula in the North of Western Siberia, the Yamal
LNG project is to develop the wet gas resources of the Yamal-Nenets region.
Shareholders of the plant operator OJSC Yamal LNG are the Russian electric
company OJSC NOVATEK (80%) and the French Total (20%).

The Siemens SGT-800 industrial gas turbine combines a reliable robust design
with high efficiency and low emissions and is qualified especially for such
harsh climate conditions like in the area north of the Arctic Circle. “Yamal
LNG is a key project for Siemens. It is the biggest single order so far for
this type of gas turbine and for the future we see a quite promising market,
particularly in Russia,” said Adil Toubia, CEO of the Siemens Energy Oil & Gas
Division.

In 2010 the Russian Government approved a comprehensive plan geared to develop
production of liquefied natural gas on the Yamal Peninsula. Yamal LNG was
selected as a pilot project, which envisages the construction of a LNG plant
with an annual capacity of over 16 million tons based on feedstock resources
of the South-Tambeyskoye field, located in the north-eastern portion of the
Yamal Peninsula. According to the PRMS reserve standards the proven and
probable reserves of the South-Tambeyskoye field as of December 31, 2012, were
appraised at 907 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
