LNG Industry,

Sakhalin Energy’s LNG plant has produced 50 million t of liquefied natural gas.

Russian LNG cargoes

The Russian LNG plant, located on Sakhalin Island, was launched in February 2009. Since then, the company has supplied 769 cargoes of LNG, the majority of which has been shipped to Japan and South Korea.

Sakhalin Energy CEO, Roman Dashkov, commented: “This is an important milestone in the history of the company. The delivery of the new for Russia energy product was per our contract obligations and thus we can say that Sakhalin Energy is confidently moving toward its primary objective – to be the premier energy source for Asia Pacific”.

Global LNG supply

Since production began in 2009, the Sakhalin-2 LNG plant has reached its full design output of 9.6 million tpa of LNG in less than 18 months. Continuous improvements that have been implemented since 2010 allowed for 10% increase in production. Sakhalin Energy contributes over 4% of global LNG supplies.
