CTSD in Sakhalin (PDF, 301 Kb)
June 16, 2011
In 2004, the Japanese firm Chiyoda, in a joint venture (CTSD), was awarded by Sakhalin Energy Investment Company the contract to build Russia’s first ever liquefied natural gas plant in the harsh subarctic environment of Sakhalin Island. CTSD needed a committed, long standing partner that could rise to the challenge (a huge investment, camp commissioning, thousands of employees from many nationalities, strict local government regulations, tight budgets and extreme climatic conditions...) allowing them to concentrate on getting the job done. CTSD chose Sodexo, based on several past experiences between Chiyoda and Sodexo on large projects in Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
