Our Arctic Neighbors: Gazprom commissions Yamal railroad bridge

Russia’s state-owned energy giant Gazprom has commissioned a bridge over the Yuribey River floodplain on the Yamal Peninsula, part of the Obskaya-Bovanenkovo railroad, the company said in a release Sept. 24. The 2.5-mile-long bridge is the longest north of the Arctic Circle and should have an operating life of 100 years, according to Gazprom.

“The new railroad thoroughfare, designed to connect Yamal’s (gas) fields with the transportation infrastructure of the northern Urals, will become a crucial component of the national strategic project to develop the Yamal Peninsula’s fields,” said Gazprom’s CEO, Alexey Miller. “The year-round delivery of cargo, equipment and personnel to develop Yamal will enable us to rapidly form a new gas province on the peninsula of fundamental importance for the development of Russia’s gas industry over the coming decades.”
