Upstream oil and gas development in the Russian Continental Shelf is among the most critical issues for the government. Special emphasis needs to be placed on Far Eastern resource base development, initially targeting Sakhalin offshore where available resources have been estimated at 5,979 Bcm including 871 Bcm for ABC1, 313 Bcm for C2, and 4,795 Bcm for C3+D1 Russian categories. Unfriendly weather, engineeringrelated, and geological conditions are typical of Sakhalin offshore. In these challenging environment, subsea production systems are commonly used for gas production. This paper considers the key upstream project parts for Kirinskoye gas and condensate field as well as hydrocarbon treatment and pipelining technology chains covering segments from subsea production to onshore process facilities.
