VNG and Gazprom intensify cooperation on gas storage facility safety
Contracts signed at second international conference in Leipzig
In future, VNG and Gazprom subsidiary OOO Gazprom VNIIGAZ are to work on a future-oriented, energy-saving ejector system at Bernburg underground storage facility. The new system will reduce the compressor power required for natural gas injection and therefore also energy consumption. Agreement on joint research work was also agreed with OOO Gazpromenergodiagnostika. The two companies are to develop procedures for even more reliable measurements in underground storage facilities and are to concentrate on improved condition assessment for well installations. VNG and the Gazprom subsidiary have already cooperated in this area for several years. VNG and OAO Gazprom have been engaged in joint research work for the development of energy-saving gas storage and gas transmission systems for more than ten years.
This year, the international conference will bring gas storage experts to Leipzig on May 25 and 26. The conference was first held in 2009 on the initiative of VNG and Gazprom. The objective of the conference is to provide a platform for the exchange of information between international specialists and storage facility operators on the latest equipment and methods for ensuring optimum operation, the reliability of above-ground and underground installations and the possibilities of optimizing natural gas injection into and withdrawal from different storage formations.
