Arkutun-Dagi Oil and Gas Field, Sakhalin 1, Russia

Arkutun-Dagi is the third and final field being developed as part of the larger Sakhalin 1 project, which also includes the Chayvo and Orlan fields. The field is located at water depths ranging from 15m to 40m and is being developed in phases starting from the northern section.

Production from the Arkutun-Dagi field is expected to start in 2014, increasing the annual production capacity of Sakhalin 1 by 32.5 million barrels (4.5 million tonnes) of oil. The total annual production from Sakhalin-1 project is estimated to exceed 10 million tonnes by 2018.

Discovered in 1989, the Arkutun-Dagi oil and gas field is located 25km offshore Sakhalin Island in the sea of Okhotsk, approximately 25km east of the Chayvo field and 18km northeast of the Orlan platform.

Sakhalin 1 ownership and project details

The partners in the Sakhalin 1 project include operator Exxon Neftegas (30%), Rosneft-RN Astra (8.5%), Sakhalinmorneftegas-Shelf (11.5%), SODECO (30%), and ONGC Videsh (20%).

Extensive exploration activities were carried out at the site from 1996 to 2001 and construction was started in 2002. Phase one involved the development of the Chayvo field, which started initial production in October 2005 and reached peak production of 250,000 barrels (33,000t) a day in February 2007. Development of the Odoptu field under phase two started in May 2009 and production commenced in September 2010.

The fields are estimated to hold potential recoverable resources of 2.3 billion barrels (307 million tonnes) of oil and 485 billion cubic metres (17.1 trillion cubic feet) of gas. Production from the project is expected to continue through to 2050 and the total investment is estimated to reach approximately $10bn to $12bn.
