At the time of writing, the project documentation and results of engineering survey for Stage 1 of the project have been agreed with Rosmorport, and approval has been granted by the Main State Department of Expertise (№1192-16/ГГЭ-10755/04 dated 28.10.2016).

Stage 1 of construction work envisages the building of a quay for receiving oversized cargoes and construction materials, with a temporary access road and zone for the temporary storage of equipment and materials.

To enable the construction of a sea terminal for the production and handling of up to 660 thousand tonnes of LNG per annum, the Russian government took the decision to ezpand the Vysotsk seaport.
