The agreement defines the framework and
targets for joint activities and projects to support Novatek’s decarbonization
objectives and goal to become the world’s leading supplier of clean LNG. Novatek
intends to benefit from Siemens Energy’s extensive technology portfolio and expertise
in sustainable energy solutions to lower GHG emissions and enhance the overall
sustainability of LNG production.
The parties intend to cooperate, in
particular, on projects to increase energy efficiency and the application of
digital technologies, the use of hydrogen and other carbon-neutral fuels for
energy generation, the production of "green" and "blue"
hydrogen, as well as in solutions for carbon capture, utilization and storage.
The partnership builds on the two parties’
longstanding business relationship and history of collaborating on world-class
LNG developments, including the Yamal and Arctic LNG2 projects – both of which
are located in the Yamal-Nenets Region in Northern Russia. In 2015, Siemens
Energy supplied four boil-off gas (BOG) compressors and eight SGT-800 units
with one core engine to the Yamal project, along with 29 of the largest and heaviest modular e-houses
ever constructed. For ArcticLNG2, Siemens Energy is providing six BOG compressors
and three feed gas booster compressors.
Bruch, CEO of Siemens Energy:
our extensive portfolio, from fossil fuels to renewables, we are uniquely positioned to support the LNG sector drive
toward a more sustainable future,” said Christian Bruch, CEO Siemens Energy. “The
oil and gas industry faces the challenge of reducing its carbon footprint and meet
the world’s growing demand for power in the most environmentally responsible
manner. We are pleased by the trust of Novatek to address those challenges in
