pipe diameter
Northern Lights is the first gas transportation pipeline to connect natural gas-rich fields in the Komi Republic and the north of the Tyumen Region with Central and Western Russia. Its total length is around 3,000 km.

The giant pipeline’s fist stage, Vuktyl – Ukhta – Torzhok, was to run from the Vuktyl field (Vuktyl Municipal District, Komi Republic) to Russia’s western borders, crossing the Komi Republic and Arkhangelsk, Vologda, Yaroslavl and Kalinin (Tver) regions. Its length was 1,600 km. Eventually, the pipeline proved to be twice as long – around 3,000 km – and connected West Siberian fields with the central and western parts of the Soviet Union. The first stage comprised two pipeline sections of different diameters: 1,020 mm (from Vuktyl to Ukhta) and 1,220 mm (from Ukhta to Torzhok). With multiple compressor stations expected to be brought on stream in early 1970, the pipeline’s throughput capacity was to exceed 10 bcm of gas per annum. The first stage was put into commercial operation in late 1972.
The second stage employed large-diameter 1,420 mm pipes, making it possible to significantly ramp up the pipeline throughput capacity. December 1977 saw the launch of the third stage, Punga – Ukhta – Torzhok pipeline with a diameter of 1,420 mm. The fourth stage of the North-Centre gas transportation system, including the Urengoy – Ukhta – Gryazovets gas pipeline, was commissioned in April 1981. The northern corridor transported 195 mcm of gas per day to central and northwestern regions of the Soviet Union.
