This is the best Sakhalin-2 LNG plant annual performance ever.
“Despite unprecedented challenges, both external, including the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, and internal requirements to ensure a “virus-free” status of our assets, we managed to maintain business continuity and reach a historic high production for LNG”, noted Roman Dashkov, CEO of Sakhalin Energy.
- Most of natural gas is produced by the company at the LUN-A platform in the Lunskoye field, north of Sakhalin
- Further the gas is transported via transsakhalin pipeline system through the onshore processing facility to the LNG plant
- Its original design capacity is 9.6 mtpa
- Due to technical improvements and upgrade, with temperature factor, the factual production has been increased by 20 %
During the year the company’s assets demonstrated a world-class reliability, resulting in above-target performance for the production and shipment of LNG to the buyers.
Sakhalin Energy continues to expand the market in such a difficult time - since the launch of the Sakhalin-2 project, the company’s LNG has been delivered to 49 ports located in 8 countries, with Singapore added to the list in 2020.
