The Pochinki – Gryazovets gas pipeline serves as an interconnector between the central and northern gas transmission corridors of Russia’s Unified Gas Supply System. The pipeline has made gas supplies to the northwestern and central regions of the country more reliable and flexible.
Figures and facts
Length: 645 kilometers.
Diameter: 1,420 millimeters.
Working pressure: 75 atm (7.4 MPa).
Annual capacity: around 22 billion cubic meters of gas.
Number of compressor stations: 4.
The gas pipeline’s route passes through the Nizhny Novgorod, Vladimir, Ivanovo, Yaroslavl and Vologda Regions.
The gas pipeline’s construction was launched in September 2007 and completed in 2012.
At present, the pipeline conveys gas to northwestern Russia. Later on, with the development of gas production in the Yamal Peninsula, the pipeline will be able to provide reverse-flow supplies, redirecting gas to central Russia.
