Russia’s largest oil and gas contractor has signed three contracts with gas monopoly Gazprom to build stretches of the Ukhta-Torzhok 2 gas pipeline in northwestern Russia, Sputnik reported, citing Gazprom documents published on December 26.

Stroygazmontazh will be tasked with construction and installation at three sites on a 173-mile stretch of Ukhta-Torzhok 2 pipeline for a total of $653.9 million.

Ukhta-Torzhok 2 plays a key role in ensuring the delivery of the needed gas volumes to northwestern Russia for domestic consumption and export purposes, including in order to deliver natural gas into Nord Stream 2 from Russia to Germany, according to Gazprom’s website.
