The Sakhalin II liquefied natural gas project exceeded its design production capacity of 10.8 million tons per year by 1.2 million tons in 2015, Gazprom and Shell executives noted at a meeting in St. Petersburg.
Gazprom’s head Alexey Miller met with Harry Brekelmans, Maarten Wetselaar and Ronan Cassidy, members of the executive committee of Shell to discuss the LNG plant’s expansion activities.
It was said that, at present, the FEED of the third train is ongoing, a part of the project carried out by Shell Global Solutions International and Giprogazcenter, a Russian design institute.
Gazprom and Shell agreed to build the third production train at the Sakhalin II project in June last year.
Sakhalin Energy is the Sakhalin II project operator with the ownership distributed among Gazprom (50 percent plus one share), Shell (27.5 percent minus one share), Mitsui (12.5 percent) and Mitsubishi (10 per cent).
