About the project

Sakhalin II is one of the world’s largest integrated greenfield oil and gas projects developed in the harsh subarctic conditions of the Russian Far East.

Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd. (Sakhalin Energy) is the operator of the Sakhalin-2 project under a Production Sharing Agreement with the Russian Federation. The company was formed in 1994 to develop the Piltun-Astokhskoye oil field and the Lunskoye gas field in the Sea of Okhotsk offshore Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East.

The project includes three offshore production platforms, two of them being the heaviest ever constructed offshore; a system of offshore and onshore pipelines; and hydrocarbons processing, transportation, storage and export facilities.

The project creates around 2.5 thousand full-time jobs.
