SRTO – Torzhok


The Northern Tyumen Region (SRTO) – Torzhok gas trunkline was built to convey gas from the Nadym-Pur-Taz region.

The SRTO – Torzhok gas pipeline became a crucial component of the multi-string Urengoy – Nadym – Peregrebnoye – Ukhta – Torzhok gas transmission system. The main purpose of the project was to boost gas supplies to consumers in the northwest of Russia and to secure gas exports via the Yamal – Europe gas pipeline.

Facts and figures

The gas pipeline runs from the Urengoyskoye field in Western Siberia to the town of Torzhok, one of the junction points of Russia’s Unified Gas Supply System.

The 2,200-kilometer trunkline is equipped with 13 compressor stations (968 MW in aggregate capacity). Its design capacity varies between 20.5 and 28.5 billion cubic meters per year depending on the section.

The pipeline’s construction started in 1995. Its linear part was brought onstream in 2006. By 2010, ten compressor stations with the aggregate capacity of 743 MW were built along the route. In 2012, another three stations were brought into operation in parallel with the Bovanenkovo – Ukhta gas pipeline.

The trunkline reached its design capacity in 2012.
