Sakhalin Energy and Sovcomflot (SCF) inform they have agreed to extend their co-operation having signed a number of agreements for construction and long-term operation of support vessels for the Sakhalin-2 project.

SCF explain that the vessels will be used as year-round personnel carriers and also as supply vessela for offshore platforms in the Sea of Okhotsk. In case of emergency, they will be deployed for personnel evacuation and oil spill response.

It is intended that Russian shipbuilders will play an active role in the construction of the new vessels: SCF has already signed a shipbuilding contract with Arctech (a joint venture between OAO United Shipbuilding Corporation and STX Finland) and structural components for the vessels will be produced in Russia at Vyborg Shipyard.

Sergey Frank, President and CEO of Sovcomflot, said: “We are grateful to our partners, Sakhalin Energy, for the opportunity to expand our involvement in the Sakhalin-II project. This is fully in line with Sovcomflot’s strategic plans, which provide for the expansion of our fleet with state-of-the-art vessels and an increase in the share of technical projects in our business portfolio. The company’s backlog of future contracted revenue totals over US$2-billion.

Sovcomflot add that the signing of the contract for construction and long-term operation of supply vessels and MOUs for an additional three standby vessels is example of large scale involvement of Russian industry in Sakhalin-2.
