The actual capacity of the three trains of Yamal LNG liquefaction plant is 17.5 mn tons, told Novatek CJairman Leonid Mikhelson the audience of the Arctic Forum in St. Petersburg.
“This is 6-7% above the projected capacity. By the end of the year we plan to launch the fourth production train with a capacity of 1 mn tons”, he added.
This will bring the Yamal LNG total capacity up to 18.5 mn tons per annum. Initially, only three trains with a total capacity of 16.5 mn ton were planned.
