September 9, 2011
The Russky Island (Vladivostok) hosted today celebrations dedicated to the commissioning of the first startup complex at the Sakhalin – Khabarovsk – Vladivostok gas transmission system (GTS) and to the launch of gas supplies to the Primorsky Krai.

Taking part in the event were Vladimir Putin, Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation; Viktor Ishaev, Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal Okrug; Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Sergey Darkin Governor of the Primorsky Krai.

The GTS route starts in Sakhalin, crosses the Nevelsky Strait, passes near Komsomolsk-on-Amur and Khabarovsk and ends in the vicinity of Vladivostok. Gazprom has constructed the GTS sections from Sakhalin to Komsomolsk-on-Amur and from Khabarovsk to Vladivostok with the total length of 1,350 kilometers (diameter – 1,200 millimeters, working pressure – 100 Ata). The existing gas pipeline from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to Khabarovsk (diameter – 700 millimeters, length – 472 kilometers) is also a part of the GTS. Thus, the total GTS length exceeds 1,800 kilometers.

The capacity of the GTS first startup complex makes up 6 billion cubic meters per year. Besides the linepipe, the startup complex consists of the Sakhalin main compressor station, a gas distribution station (GDS) in Vladivostok, power supply, telemechanics, communications systems and access roads.
