Sakhalin-1 is comprised of Russian, Japanese, Indian and American participants and is operated by Exxon Neftegas Limited, a subsidiary of ExxonMobil — the world’s largest non-governmental oil and gas company.  

Although discovered several decades ago, the Sakhalin-1 fields were not developed until new technologies became available as a result of successful partnership between Russian and international companies.

Sakhalin-1 includes three oil and gas fields — Chayvo, Odoptu, and Arkutun Dagi — located off the northeast coast of Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East.  

Of all ExxonMobil projects, Sakhalin-1 is one of the most challenging. The harsh arctic climate and difficult geographical conditions have required the use of unique technologies.
