Sakhalin Energy is an operator of Sakhalin-2, one of the world’s largest integrated oil and gas projects, that includes Russia’s first offshore gas production platform and liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant.
Wood’s Group has been providing engineering and construction support, including studies and modifications, to offshore and onshore assets on Sakhalin Island in the Russian Federation for more than a decade.
Wood Group informed on Monday that this new contract adds brownfield drilling upgrade services to the capabilities Wood Group provides across the following assets: Piltun- Astokhskoye-A offshore platform (Molikpaq); Piltun- Astokhskoye-B offshore platform (PA-B); Lunskoye-A offshore platform (LUN-A); Onshore processing facilities including Booster stations 1 and 2; Liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant; Oil export terminal (OET); and Tanker loading unit (TLU).
Effective immediately, the five-year contract, with two, one-year extension options will be delivered by Wood Group’s engineering team based in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on Sakhalin Island and supported by the company’s offices in Australia, Norway, China and the UK.
Wood Group added that a major feature of the TSS contract will be a new working relationship between Wood Group and a Russian Design Institute (RDI), Gasproektengineering AOJSC (GPE). GPE is a Gazprom company with over 1000 employees in the Russian Federation and headquarters in Voronezh, approximately 470 kilometers south of Moscow.
