Exxon Neftegas Limited (ENL)

Electrical, instrumentation, automation, control, telecommunications maintenance and modifications


In August 2015, Kentech were awarded the long term contract on the Sakhalin-1 Project by Exxon Neftegas Limited, for the execution and management of maintenance and modification services associated with general electrical, instrumentation, control / automation, telecommunication disciplines, and electrical & mechanical services to the HVAC systems. 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. 

Our project teams are assigned to all of the remote Sakhalin-1 locations, covering hundreds of kilometres, principal work locations of Sakhalin-1 being 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. In addition to being a multinational employer, Kentech are committed to maximising the potential and resources of the region, and conducts its business by utilising the skills and expertise of the individuals, contractors and suppliers in the local area, with 90% of employees on the project being Russian nationals.
