LNG tanks, Yamal, Siberia, Russia
Entrepose Contracting and VINCI Construction Grands Projets teams completed civil engineering works for the construction of four double-walled cryogenic tanks designed to store liquefied natural gas on the Yamal Peninsula in the far north of Russia, one of the world’s coldest regions, 600 km from the Arctic Circle. The electromechanical work continues. The hard surfaces for tanks 1 and 2 (each of which weighs more than 700 tonnes) and the pipe racks were successfully installed just before Christmas in temperatures below -40°C. The project is set for completion in 2017, ahead of the contractual delivery date.
