Russia's First LNG Plant Marks a Ten-Year Anniversary

February 2019 marks the 10th anniversary since Russia’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant of the Sakhalin-2 project was launched. In 2010, the plant reached its full design capacity of 9.6 million tons of LNG per year. Its further optimization allowed to increase output by another 20%.

Today, LNG from Sakhalin strengthens Russia’s position as a major energy producer and provides about 3.6% of the global LNG trade and about 4.8% of the LNG market in the Asia-Pacific region.

The “Sakhalin Energy” company is the operator of the Sakhalin-2 plant. The company supplies liquefied gas to Japan, South Korea, China, India, Thailand, Taiwan and Kuwait. Sakhalin Energy’s shareholders are: Gazprom PJSC (50% plus 1 share), Royal Dutch Shell (27.5% minus 1 share), Mitsui (12.5%) and Mitsubishi (10%).
