In Murmansk, Russian President Vladimir Putin gave the start of the North Sea Route shipment of the first gas liquefaction process line on gravity-type bases for Arctic LNG-2 to the place of operation on the Gydan Peninsula. This is reported by Kommersant.

Leonid Mikhelson, head of NOVATEK, asked the president to give a hoot. The head of state folded his hands at his lips jokingly and then turned to the rig and turned the lever. A prolonged beep was heard.

Arctic LNG-2 is NOVATEK's second large-capacity liquefied natural gas project after Yamal LNG. The Utrenneye deposit is the resource base. The project will build three processing lines with a capacity of 6.6 mn tons each, i.e. 19.8 mn tons of LNG per year.
