#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The boundaries of the Dikson seaport on the coast of Taimyr will be expanded for the construction of an oil terminal with a capacity of 25 million tons per year.
The Ministry of Transport within 24 months must submit a project on changing the port boundaries for the construction of infrastructure facilities of the Port Bay Sever terminal for oil transshipment from the Payakhskaya group of fields and coal from the Syradasay field. In addition to the oil terminal, the infrastructure of the project will include an oil pipeline with a length of 413 kilometers, motorways with a total length of one thousand kilometers, telecommunications, power generation facilities with a capacity of 1 GW and over a thousand kilometers of power lines.
Recall that the village of Dikson is the northernmost port of Russia on the shores of the Kara Sea. The Port of Bay North oil terminal is planned to be built just south of Dikson. The launch of the oil terminal will bring several thousand jobs to Taimyr. In May, Rosneft began exploration drilling in Taimyr. And in August, the head of Rosneft presented the premium Taimyr oil to the Russian president. The Payakhskoye field will become a key asset of the new large-scale Vostok Oil project, which could turn Taimyr into a new oil and gas province.
