At the end of December 2013 the plant division for sales, production, and R&D fulfilled its primary obligations on the current contract for delivery with one of the long-term partner-clients of Gazprom in terrestrial applications — Salyut Trading House and Engineering Center.

Under this contract Salyut manufactured, tested, and delivered two sets of gas turbine GTE-20/12DTs engines for terrestrial industrial application.

Each GTE comprising a gas generator, power turbine, number of units and technological systems, is assembled together in the form of a single unit fully factory ready. The nominal output of one engine is 12 mW, the output speed of the engine is 3000 RPM, and it uses natural gas as fuel.

The delivered GTE-20/12DTs will be used as electrical generators in gas turbine units (GTUs) at the gas turbine electrical power station at the Bovanenkovsky oil and gas condensate field belonging to Gazprom Extraction Nadym, a subsidiary of Gazprom.

In the village of Bovanenkovsky they have already started building this industrial facility.

The delivery of this equipment will ensure the accelerated development of the Bovanenkovsky OGCF, increase the reliability of extraction and transportation of crude hydrocarbons for the needs of Russian consumers and under the program North Stream for the countries of Eastern Europe, being implemented by the Russian government and Gazprom.

In 2014 the Salyut Trading House and Engineering Center plans to order two more full GTE-20/12DTs for the Bovanenkovsky OGCF.

In other plans for 2014, Salyut includes work on cooperating with another Gazprom subsidiary — Gazprom Extraction Yamburg, to execute capital renovation of the gas generator, delivery of spare parts and carrying out repairs and technical servicing on GTEs in operation at the GTES-72 gas turbine electric power station.

The Bovanenkovsky oil and gas condensate field is a huge gas field on the Yamal peninsula in Russia, in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region. It is located 40 km from the Karsky Sea at the mouth of the Syo-Yakha, Mordyyakha, and Nadui-Yakha rivers.

The field is near the base camp Bovanenkovo, belonging to Gazprom Extraction Nadym.

The remaining recoverable reserves are 4.9 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, 5.7 million tons of oil, and 111.7 million tons of condensate.

The projected capacity of the field is up to 140 billion cubic meters of gas.

The field was opened in 1971, and was named after the legendary Soviet geophysicist Vadim Dmitrievich Bovanenko.

The client for the infrastructure development for the Bovanenkovsky OGCF, and also the company operating the field, is Gazprom Extraction Nadym, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gazprom.
