YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, May 3 (RIA Novosti) – Russian-made equipment to tackle a potential oil spill has been delivered to the island of Sakhalin in Russia's Far East on the order of the operator for a massive energy project.

Sakhalin Energy, the operator of the Sakhalin II oil and gas project, said it had received 10 emergency complexes. A spokesman said it planned to locate two of them in the north east of the island and other eight along the oil and gas pipeline.

The representative said more than 40 pieces of various forms of equipment were designed to provide “emergency assistance in the event of any oil-product spill on land.”

The spokesman said the systems could be used by all oil and gas producing companies operating on Sakhalin, including Exxon Neftegas, Elvari-Neftegas and others.

Sakhalin Energy, owned by Royal Dutch/Shell (55%) and Japan's Mitsui (25%) and Mitsubishi (20%), is developing two vast offshore fields off the island of Sakhalin in Russia's Far East that hold estimated recoverable reserves of 150 million metric tons of oil and 500 billion cubic meters of gas. It is also building Russia's first liquefied gas plant on Sakhalin with a designed capacity of 9.6 million tons a year.
