Sakhalin has advantages over other regions of the Far East in the oil and gas sector - Khoroshavin

As part of a briefing by the governor of the Sakhalin region, Alexander Khoroshavin, at the XXI World Oil Congress, the head of the region announced that at present the Government of the Sakhalin region is setting new targets for increasing the gas supply to its partners.

“In the next five years, a whole cluster of industries will be formed in the Far East and Eastern Siberia, from the extraction of hydrocarbons, their supply by pipeline and sea transport for export and for the gasification of Russian regions, to the creation of new gas and petrochemical enterprises. In this sense, Sakhalin has significant advantages over other regions of the Far East. It produces 65% of oil and almost 90% of gas throughout the macro-region. In addition, the Sakhalin Region has the necessary production infrastructure and explored fields, which by 2020 can provide production of up to 42 billion cubic meters. meters of gas per year. All this is a key condition for increasing gas supplies to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, ”the governor said.

In addition, Khoroshavin noted Sakhalin's prospects in the LNG market. The first Russian LNG plant is operating on the island, which produces about 11 million tons of finished products a year. At present, issues related to the construction of the third line at the operating enterprise and the new LNG plant are being studied.

On June 17, within the framework of the World Petroleum Congress, the Governor of the Sakhalin Region will make a presentation at a special session “The Role of LNG for Russia's Energy Future”.
