Sakhalin-2 – Russia’s first LNG plant

Sakhalin-2 is one of the world’s largest integrated greenfield oil and gas projects developed in the harsh subarctic conditions of the Russian Far East.For Gazprom Group, the Sakhalin-2 project is the key source of LNG supplies to the Asia-Pacific Region.

Sakhalin-2 nominal output capacity, including two production trains, amounts to 9.6 mln t a year. However, thanks to the constant optimization of the production systems and equipment upgrades actual LNG production at the plant consistently exceeds its nominal output capacity. In 2019, 11 mt of LNG was supplied to customers from the Sakhalin II plant. In 2019, the share of Sakhalin LNG on the Asia-Pacific Region market amounted to 4.4%, on the global market – to 3.1%.

Russia’s first LNG plant as part of the Sakhalin-2 project was commissioned on February 18, 2009. In 2018, design documentation was competed and all necessary conclusions of the state experts were received for the construction of the third production train of the Sakhalin-2.

The operator of the project is Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd. (Sakhalin Energy). The shareholders are PJSC Gazprom (50 per cent, plus one share), Shell Sakhalin Holdings B.V., Mitsui Sakhalin Holdings B.V. and Diamond Gas Sakhalin B.V. (subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation).
