Client: Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd (Sakhalin Energy)

Project value: US$700 million

Location: Sakhalin island

In 2017, Petrofac was awarded its tenth project in Russia with a contract worth more than US$700 million for Sakhalin Energy’s onshore processing facility (OPF).

The project, located on Sakhalin island, comprises a lump-sum engineering, procurement and offshore fabrication component, as well as a reimbursable element for construction and site services.

The scope of work includes:

  • Inlet separation and feed gas compression facilities
  • A new flare system
  • Utilities
  • Substations and associated buildings
  • A temporary beach landing facility
  • Refurbishment of the existing camp, temporary site facilities for Sakhalin Energy and Petrofac
  • Brownfield tie-ins to the existing OPF

The project will support Sakhalin Energy in maintaining its sustainable LNG capacity.

Sakhalin island is a very familiar location for Petrofac as our Sakhalin Technical Training Centre (STTC), established in 2006, has been helping meet increased local demand for competent personnel specialising in the oil and gas industry. From STTC we are able to supply a wide range of technical support services including front-end engineering and design, pre-commissioning and commissioning, operations and maintenance as well as technical manpower support.
