The first line of the Amur Gas Processing Plant, which can produce 7 bcm of natural gas per year, was launched on June 9. The construction of the Amur GPP, with a processing capacity of 42 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year, has been underway since 2015. It receives gas from the Power of Siberia pipeline. Gazprom itself has estimated the cost of the construction at 950 billion rubles (US$13 billion). The plant is set to become the world’s second largest in terms of gas processing after US Prudhoe Bay Unit Central Gas Facility and the first in terms of producing helium. According to Gazprom, helium from the Amur Gas Processing Plant will be exported.
