Yamal LNG has scheduled maintenance of the second and third LNG trains with consecutive shutdowns for 12 days each from 21 May to 15 June 2020. In addition to regular maintenance works, Yamal LNG plan to modernize the absorbers at the mercury removal units, as well as implement a number of upgrades aimed at improving the efficiency of the LNG trains. The regular maintenance is carried out in accordance with the approved annual schedule and will not affect the planned LNG production volume for the year.
Due to the successful implementation of a Risk Based Inspection (RBI) maintenance system at Yamal LNG, the scheduled maintenance of the first liquefaction train is postponed by one year from August 2020 to 2021. The RBI methodology allows to maintain reliable operations of the LNG plant while reducing the total number of service hours.
