Fire and gas detection equipment has been supplied by JT Day to the Sakhalin-1 Project - Chayvo (Phase 2) operated by Exxon Neftegas on the island of Sakhalin in the waters off Russia.
JT Day's Melbourne and Perth based project teams worked on the project, also providing instrument and electrical equipment.
The Chayvo Phase 2 project is an expanded development of Chayvo natural gas resources, and involves drilling additional gas wells and the expansion of existing onshore and offshore facilities.
Operators are hoping to develop the operation there to be able to withstand the extreme arctic like conditions so that it can be operated continuously.
The orders completed by JT Day included:
- Chalmit hazardous area lighting
- Hawke International hazardous area 316SS and GRP junction boxes; plus
- the Oglaend System 316SS cable ladder, and accessories.
As part of the specifications for the project, all electrical and instrumentation equipment provided needed to be able to withstand Sakhalin's near arctic conditions.
