Gazprom will take an FID on the third phase of the Sakhalin 2 LNG plant at the end of this year or in early 2019, Russia’s Prime news agency quoted Alexander Medvedev, the company’s deputy chairman, as saying on Thursday.

The expansion will increase the plant’s capacity by 50%, from 9.6 mtpa to 15.0 mtpa. FEED work on the third phase has been completed, according to Stuart Bradford, head of new projects at Shell, which is a stakeholder in Sakhalin 2.
