In the process of LNG, pipelines, compressor stations and ground infrastructure only on the territory of the Murmansk region will be utilized $ 17 billion. During operation of the Shtokman gas condensate field federal and regional budgets will receive about $ 20 billion dollars in tax deductions. By 2014, only due to this project, the gross regional product will grow by half. The 40% increase in budget revenues of the Murmansk region. Annual allocation of Gazprom's Shtokman 5% of extracted gas to the needs of the Murmansk area will gasify towns of the Kola Peninsula, lower prices for consumers of heating at 35 – 40%.

For example, in the Pechora Sea this summer, set the fixed offshore ice-resistant offloading berth (FOIROT) Varandey, class MS CI (*) A2u SMEs, built on the order of "Varandey terminal, and in fact, LUKOIL in the factory building metal LUKOIL – Kaliningradmorneft. Through this structure, octagonal caisson platform type, height 65.5 meters, width 61.75 and a length of 108.3 meters, capable of withstanding the pressure of the ice fields of 12 million tons of oil produced at fields in Timan-Pechora, will be sent by tanker deadweight of 20 to 70 thousand tons of consumers year-round across the Kola Bay.
