YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, August 15 (Itar-Tass) – The supply of 1,900 kilometres of pipes for the oil and gas pipeline built under the Sakhalin-2 project has been completed. The last train with pipes arrived from the mainland to the south of the Sakhalin Island for the Starstroi company that is laying two pipelines from Sakhalin’s north to south. 1,600 kilometres of the pipes are for ground pipelines and 300 kilometres will be laid under the bed of the Sea of Okhotsk from the Molikpak, LUN-A and PA-B offshore oil recovery platforms. The total weight of the pipes is exceeding 0.5 million tonnes.

Sakhalin Energy is the Sakhalin-2 project operator. The company press service said that a large batch of pipes for the oil and gas pipeline was supplied by the Vyksunsk Metallurgical Plant. Multi-layer protective coating was laid on the pipes at a plant installed in Nakhodka.

It is planned to complete the construction of the oil and gas pipeline with the total length of 800 kilometres at the end of 2007.

A 220-kilometre-long oil pipeline has been built in the north of Sakhalin under the Sakhalin-1 project. It stretched from the Chaivo field at which the sea platforms Yastreb and Orlan are recovering hydrocarbons to the De-Kastri port in the Khabarovsk territory. This “short” pipeline is currently being tested. As many as 12.5 million tonnes of oil will be pumped though it annually within 40 years. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
