Yamal LNG is an integrated project for natural gas production, liquefaction and marketing. Sovcomflot began serving the project in 2017.
Prirazlomnoye oil field was opened in 1989 and is situated on Russia’s Arctic shelf, 32 nautical miles into the Pechora Sea. The offshore ice-resistant platform “Prirazlomnaya” provides for well drilling, oil extraction, preparation, storage and the offloading of oil into SCF tankers.

Sakhalin-2 is one of the world’s largest oil & gas projects, for which a comprehensive energy infrastructure for the production, transportation and processing of hydrocarbons was built. The project operator is Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Limited (“Sakhalin Energy”).
