Our Arctic Neighbors: Murmansk ready for action on Shtokman project

Russia’s northwestern Murmansk Oblast is ready to become a base for development of the Shtokman gas field in the Barents Sea and is looking forward to working with its Norwegian partner in the Shtokman project, StatoilHydro, Grigory Stratiy, the head of the Murmanshelf Association of Oil and Gas Industry Suppliers, said at the RAO/CIS Offshore conference in St. Petersburg Sept. 18.

The Murmanshelf Association is a good example of international cooperation, established at the initiative of StatoilHydro in agreement with the government of Murmansk Oblast, Stratiy said.

“I like the way StatoilHydro engages local contractors for work,” he added. “We have constructive dialogue with Shokman Development as well; the company has introduced into its regulatory documents a subclause stating that priority for participation in the project will be given to companies and suppliers registered within the territory of Murmansk Oblast.

“We know the capabilities of local industrial companies and can evaluate the contribution to be made by them into (the) preparatory phase of developing the Shtokman field. It makes me glad that Shtokman Development has already developed contractual strategy principals and conducts open policy-planning seminars with suppliers.”
