During the life of the project over US$ 89 billion in taxes, royalty payments and the state’s share of oil and gas is anticipated to be paid to the Russian state.

The gas from Chayvo is supplied to Khabarovsk Krai. First gas was delivered there in 2005 and this became a significant step in the Russian Far East gasification program.

We are committed to contracting as many local companies as possible and providing jobs for as many Russian nationals as possible.

The project is spending over US$ 156 million on infrastructure to support hydrocarbons operations which also benefits the community.
