Two sites for the construction of the Far Eastern LNG plant are considered by the participants of this project

As Alexey Volkov, Vice President of ExxonMobil Russia, said during the "LNG of the 2016 Congress", the participants of this project are still watching both possible sites of the LNG plant - DeKastri and Sakhalin

“The costs for both sites are comparable, each has its own advantages and disadvantages,” he said.
"OIR will be taken after preliminary design. When this happens, I can not say, "the vice-president added.

As reported, Rosneft planned to build an LNG plant in the south of Sakhalin Island (Far Eastern LNG), where the existing LNG plant Sakhalin Energy is located. Meanwhile, gas fields, which serve as a resource base for both projects, are located in the north of the island. Rosneft requested access to the Sakhalin-2 gas pipeline in the amount of up to 8 billion cubic meters of gas per year (in LNG equivalent to about 5,8 million tons of LNG). Sakhalin Energy and its main shareholder, Gazprom, disagreed with this proposal. "Rosneft" appealed to the court, said Interfax.

After long legal proceedings, the Federal Arbitration Court of the Far Eastern Okrug ordered the operator of Sakhalin Energy to give Rosneft's technical conditions for connection to the "pipe" in the amount of 8 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Gazprom filed a complaint with the Supreme Court against the decision to issue Rosneft technical conditions for connecting to the pipe of the Sakhalin-2 project. But the Supreme Court of Russia denied Sakhalin Energy and its main shareholder, Gazprom, the transfer of cassation appeals against the decision of lower courts in a dispute with Rosneft about admission to the Trans-Sakhalin gas pipeline.

Meanwhile, at first it became known that Rosneft was studying another site for the future LNG plant - the Khabarovsk port of DeKastri, where the oil terminal is located within the Sakhalin-1 project, in which Rosneft works together With ExxonMobil. Then, due to sanctions, ExxonMobil suspended participation in this project. In early September, 2015, the president of Rosneft Igor Sechin said that the company will postpone the launch of this LNG plant. According to the president of Exxon Neftegas Ltd. Wayne Warwick, the Far Eastern LNG project will not be implemented earlier than 2020.

"Rosneft" in 2013 year agreed with ExxonMobil on the construction of an LNG plant on the gas project "Sakhalin-1" with an annual capacity of 5 million tons. The cost of the Far Eastern LNG project is estimated at $ 8 billion. The plant was to be introduced at the end Xnumx-beginning 2019 of the year. At the same time, Rosneft concluded agreements on the sale of LNG from the future plant, starting with the first quarter of 2019.
