Very serious, including environmental, requirements are set for it, but regrettably, they are not met in full measure, he said.

A British government representative described it as the world’s biggest integrated project and expressed the hope that after all the problems were settled the model of joint work of the British government and Sakhalin Energy would become an example for other Sakhalin projects. and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan.
