Ah. Well, these days primes far > 10^6 are easily turned out in milliseconds by computer software.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but if you try various values of n you'll find a prime of the size you want. Then obviously just multiply by 2.
For instance, the billionth prime is: 22,801,763,489
