Sakhalin II Production Suspended

Earlier this week due to severe weather conditions production at the Vityaz complex offshore facility off the northeast Sakhalin coast was suspended and the Okha floating storage and offtake vessel was disengaged.

While preparing to re-connect the Okha over this weekend it became apparent that the Single Anchor Leg Mooring (SALM) buoy at the Vityaz complex has suffered damage. The cause of the damage is being investigated.

The damage to the SALM resulted in a small release of oil into sea. Oil spill response and other vessels are at the scene to avoid the chance of further release of oil.
