Sakhalin II is one of the world’s largest integrated, export-oriented oil and gas projects, and Russia’s first offshore LNG project.
In 2012, Sakhalin II added 4.5% to the world’s LNG capacity. It currently meets almost 9.5% of Japan’s gas needs, and 6% of South Korea’s.
The project exports LNG to energy markets in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the west coast of North America.
