"Dear Vladimir Vladimirovich! I can now confirm that the Ukhta-Torzhok-2 pipeline has been connected with the Russian gas supply system and that natural gas is flowing in the prescribed volumes."

Leader of Gazprom’s subsidiary unit in Ukhta symbolically pushes the button and the new 970 km long pipeline is officially launched.

"I congratulate you with this result," Putin responded. "It is significant for the whole economy of Russia," he underlined. Wednesday’s ceremony was transmitted in a direct video between Putin’s office and three of Gazprom’s key project sites.

With the official launch of the new pipeline, one of Russia’s biggest natural gas fields now delivers with full capacity.

Bovanenkovo holds about 4,9 trillion cubic meters of natural gas and will be able to deliver as much as 115 billion cubic meters per year for as long as 110 years. It has been Gazprom’s top priority since it in 2008 started construction works in the remote tundra lands of the Yamal Peninsula.
