First start-up complex within the Punginskoye Underground Gas Storage Facility Expansion Project is going to be completed by STROYGAZMONTAZH in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Region. The works have been started in 2014, thus it took two years to construct new technological complex of federal importance between Malaya Sosva river and Punga river. After alterations the active capacity of the gas storage facility will become 3.5 billion cubic meters (previous value was 2.5 billion cubic meters) and up to 5.0 billion cubic meters if taking into account the long-term reserves. Two out of four GPUs of 32 MW (total capacity) and three production facilities will be commissioned within 1st start-up complex. Moreover, the hook up of 12 new wells will be performed.
