Kentech have been delivering maintenance and modification services on the Sakhalin-1 Project for over 12 years.

In August 2015, Kentech were re-awarded the long term contract on the Sakhalin-1 Project by Exxon Neftegas Limited, for the execution and management of turnaround, maintenance and modification services associated with general electrical, instrumentation, control / automation, telecommunication disciplines, and electrical & mechanical services to the HVAC systems.  This was in succession to the completion of the previous contract which commenced in December 2008.

A key factor in Kentech being awarded this contract was the successful execution of the previous 6 year E,I,C&A,T contract, all of which had been executed without a lost time incident, and recorded over 1 million man-hours on the project, with the final 3 years being injury free. This high level of safety commitment and performance resulted in the Kentech project team being awarded many safety accolades from their client, including being awarded ENL’s Sakhalin-1 Contractor of the Year in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2018 and 2019.

Our project teams are assigned to all of the remote Sakhalin-1 locations, covering hundreds of kilometres of pipelines and the principal work locations of Sakhalin-1 Project; the Chayvo Onshore Processing Facility (OPF), Odoptu FSP, Orlan Platform, the DeKastri Terminal and Single Point Mooring system as well as valve station locations along the Crude and Gas Product Pipelines. The Kentech maintenance support scope was recently expanded with the introduction of Russia’s largest offshore platform, the Berkut in the Arktun-Dagi field.

The services provided under the E,I,C&A,T maintenance and modification agreement cover all aspects associated with the technical, QHSE, procurement and logistical requirements necessary to support the operations and production systems of the facilities.

"The strong team ethos by all the project teams working across Sakhalin Island, in some of the most hostile conditions on the planet, is what has brought us to a milestone of 6 years with nobody getting hurt."

Paul McElhone, Project Manager, Sakhalin Island
