Yamal is one of the most complex liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects ever undertaken because of its location above the Arctic Circle, a region that is icebound for 7 to 9 months of the year.


Following the project launch at the end of 2013, plant operator Novatek along with project partners, CNPC, Total and Silk Road Fund, awarded the contract for the construction and commissioning of the 4 LNG storage tanks to Tuyauteries Maintenance & Services Industieriels (TSMI) acting on behalf of Entrepose Projects and Vinci Construction Grands.
