Launching the third production facility at Bovanenkovo gas field

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Miller, colleagues,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on this major achievement: you have successfully completed a large-scale and complicated project.

Today, we are launching the third, and final, gas production facility of the unique Bovanenkovo oil and gas condensate field. This means that it will reach its full capacity.

At the same time we are opening the second line of the Ukhta-Torzhok gas pipeline. This will make it possible to deliver more gas from Yamal to central regions of the Russian Federation.

I would like to thank everyone involved in building these important industrial and infrastructure facilities.

To be continued.
