Report: Sakhalin-2 LNG production hit by technical glitch

The Sakhalin-2 project is reportedly experiencing production problems at its 9.6 mtpa LNG export facility located on Sakhalin Island, in Russia’s Far East region.

A technical “glitch” occurred on January 26 at a gas compressor and the plant is evaluating the impact of the accident on production and exports, Reuters said in a report.

However, ICIS reported on Friday the LNG project declared force majeure on 28 January due to a technical issue. According to the report, the length of the outage could not be confirmed yet.

Gazprom recently said that the liquefied natural gas project exceeded its design production capacity by 1.2 million tons in 2015. The LNG project consists of two trains with Shell and Gazprom working to add the third train.

Sakhalin Energy is the Sakhalin-2 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).
