Novatek announced Spring 2017 its intentions to build to Arctic 2 liquefied natural gas (LNG) liquefaction terminal in Gydan Peninsula in Western Siberia, Russia. Arctic LNG-2 would export gas from Novatek's Salmanovskoye (Utrenneye) and Geofizicheskoye fields.[1]

The plan is for three 5.5-million-ton-per-year (mtpa) stages to be built: Stage 1 completed in 2022, Stage 2 in 2023, and Stage 3 in 2025.[2] The estimated cost is $10 billion. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2018.[3][4]

Reports in July 2017 indicated that Saipem was expected to be chosen as construction contractor on the project.[5]
