Background

Background, Trains 1 & 2

Sakhalin II LNG Terminal is an LNG terminal in Sakhalin, Russia.[1]

In 2015, Sakhalin LNG exported more than 500 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of gas, Seventy-two percent went to Japan, 24% to South Korea, 2% to Taiwan, and 2% to China.[5]

Background, Train 3

Sakhalin proposed a capacity expansion by adding a third train. It has not yet reached a final investment decision.[6]

International Gas Union reported in 2017 that a third liquefaction and purification train at Sakhali LNG has been delayed in part by sanctions imposed against the development of the Yuzhno-Kirinskoye natural gas field, which was to feed to Sakhali.[6] In July 2019 Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Shell CEO Ben Van Buerden to secure additional investments by Shell in Russia, after which Shell announced a plan to build 260 additional gas stations, but did not announce further commitments to a Sakhalin II expansion.[7]

In November 2019, Reuters reported that the plans for the third line have been put on hold, citing a lack of gas resources as well as the international sanctions regime imposed on Russia as the main reasons.[4]
