- RusChemAlliance, a joint venture between the Russian gas companies Gazprom and RusGazDobycha, is developing the Baltic LNG project at the Baltic Sea Port of Ust-Luga in Leningrad Oblast.
- The Baltic LNG plant is a 13-mmpta liquefaction project. It will receive feedgas from West Siberian gas fields via the Northern Lights pipeline system.
- Shell, originally involved as part of the joint venture, quit the project in April 2019.
- In June 2020, the EPC contract was awarded to NIPIGAZ for gas processing plant operations and off-site facilities. Gazprom and the Baltic Chemical Company have signed a 20-year supply and offtake contract.
- The complex is expected to enter service in 2023.
