The Sakhalin II project is an oil and gas development project on Sakhalin Island and immediately offshore, in the Sea of Okhotsk, from two fields: Piltun-Astokhskoye and Lunskoye. Piltun-Astokhskoye is primarily an oil field, and Lunskoye is primarily a gas field.
The project has been met with heavy criticism over the potential environmental impact, which could include driving the world’s last 100 remaining Western Pacific gray whales to extinction. The project is managed and operated by Gazprom lead consortium Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd. (Sakhalin Energy).
Sisgeo was called to monitor a critical zone interested by a lot of landslides and instable soils where oil and gas pipelines are installed. The monitoring system is mainly composed by inclinometer and standpipe piezometer tubes monitored by removable inclinometer probes, water level indicators and automatic water level monitoring systems.
