Gazprom and RusGazDobycha set up a joint venture to develop the Tambey field at Yamal

The Limited Liability Company Gazprom Dobycha Tambey was registered today, established on a parity basis by Gazprom Nedra LLC (100 % subsidiary of PJSC Gazprom) and JSC RusGazDobycha.

The joint venture will develop and provide facilities for Tambey field on the Yamal peninsula with the start of gas production in 2026. Licenses for the use of the subsoil plots in which the field is located will be transferred from Gazprom Nedra LLC to Gazprom Dobycha Tambey LLC in 2022.

Gas from the Tambey field is characterised by a high ethane content. Therefore, it, along with the fields of the Nadym-Pur-Tazov Region, will become a raw material base for processing of ethane-rich gas Complex in the area of Ust-Luga settlement, Leningrad Region.


Tambey field is located on the Yamal peninsula within the boundaries of three license areas currently owned by Gazprom Nedra LLC — West-Tambey, North-Tambey and Tasiyskoye.

In May 2021, Gazprom and RusGazDobycha signed the Basic Agreement on the terms of implementation of a joint project to develop Tambey field.

On November 1, 2021, a general meeting of the founders of Gazprom Dobycha Tambey LLC was held where the parties signed the constituent documents of the joint venture. On November 2, a legal entity headquartered in Novy Urengoy (Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District) passed state registration.
The ethane-rich gas processing complex (ERGPC) in the area of Ust-Luga settlement, Leningrad Region, is a globally unique cluster combining gas processing, gas chemistry and natural gas liquefaction. Construction was started in May 2021.

The ERGPC will include two powerful enterprises. The first is an integrated complex for natural gas processing and liquefaction (Gas Processing Complex or GPC ERGPC; operator — RusKhimAlians LLC, Gazprom and RusGazDobycha joint venture). The second is a gas chemical complex connected by process with the GPC (GCC ERGPC; operator — Baltiysky Khimichesky Kompleks LLC, RusGazDobycha subsidiary).
