The Sakhalin-1 Project, operated by Exxon Neftegas Limited, is one of the largest single international direct investments in Russia and an excellent example of how advanced technologies are being applied to meet the challenges of the world’s growing energy demand.

About the Sakhalin-1 project

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.

Benefits to Russia

The Sakhalin-1 Project yields significant benefits to Russia including billions of dollars in revenues, domestic gas supplies to Khabarovsk Krai, employment opportunities for Russian nationals and contracting companies, and infrastructure modernization.

Project phases and facilities

Sakhalin-1's Chayvo, Odoptu, and Arkutun Dagi fields, located off the northeastern coast of Sakhalin Island in the Russian Far East, are being developed using a phased approach. Operations and facilities are located on both the island and mainland Russia.
