Sakhalin 2 project

On November 1, 2006 after a long pre-work, Morsviazsputnik concluded the communications service contract (for operation of mobile radio network in the territory of the Sakhalin region) with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company (Sakhalin 2). In terms of this contract and a number of amendments thereto, Morsviazsputnik, together with Sakhalin 2, created a dedicated communications network comprising a network of TETRA standard, radio relay network and mobile communications units used for communication between onshore facilities and industrial complexes located in the Sakhalin region with production platforms and headquarters of the company in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. For this purpose, the Company has obtained the licenses No. 102424 (mobile radio communication in dedicated communications network) and No. 135946 (provision of communication channels).

For over 13 years of participation in one of the largest-ever projects for oil and gas production in the shelf area of the Russian Federation the Company has:

  • developed, assembled and installed 2 mobile communications units with communication means including satellite communication terminals, USB aeronautical radio stations, USB maritime radio stations, HF maritime radio stations,  trunk radio stations of TETRA standard, basic and subscription trunk stations of Lesko communication system, the staff training was carried out for work with them;
  • completed the works for design, deployment and commissioning of dedicated networks of mobile radio communication of TETRA standard (7 basic stations) and radio relay communications network (communication between onshore facilities and offshore drilling platforms) with execution of all required approval documents;
  • executed all required approval documents for onshore and offshore communication means installed on drilling platforms including aeronautical communication and homing radio stations;
  • executed all required approval documents for onshore and offshore communication means installed on drilling platforms including aeronautical communication and homing radio stations;
  • executed all required approval documents for radio-electronic equipment of mobile communications  units in the territory of Sakhalin island and put these units into operation;
  •  executed all required approval import documents for the whole cooperation period with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company, provided the obtainment of approval import documents for radio-electronic equipment.
  • Now in this project the Company fulfills the functions of operator in communication networks:
  • in dedicated network of mobile radio communication of TETRA standard (including fulfillment of requirements for investigative measures);
  •  in dedicated network of radio relay communication (provision of communication channels);
  •  in emergency network using radio-electronic equipment of mobile communications  units.

 

 

   

 

In 2010, Morsviazsputnik took direct part in modernization of dedicated communication network of TETRA standard. Particularly, the previously installed equipment manufactured by ОТЕ S.p.A. (Italy) was completely replaced by MOTOROLA equipment (Germany). This required the re-execution of all approval documents by MSS that was made successfully.

In 2014-2015, some Additional Agreements to the Contract were concluded with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd for putting into operation the new equipment of dedicated network of radio relay communication and extension of dedicated communication network of TETRA standard. Within the modernization of dedicated network of radio relay communication the previously used equipment INTERLINK NL 2008 (made by NERA Networks AS, Norway) was replaced by digital radio relay communication system EVOLUTION Series LH 8G (made by Ceragon Networks Ltd., Israel). The dedicated communication network of TETRA standard was supplemented by new basic stations MTS2/MTS4 (made by Motorola GmbH, Germany), and for the purposes of improvement of safety and stability of communication of the previously installed basic station in service area the repeaters BSR421 (made by Axell Wireless Ltd., UK) were installed without extension of its operation area. For all equipment types the necessary approval documents were executed and the equipment was put into operation on facilities of Sakhalin Energy Investment Company Ltd in the territory of Sakhalin region.

In 2011 and 2015, the Company was successfully inspected by Roskomnadzor for compliance with license terms. During inspection the operation of Morsviazsputnik in Sakhalin did not rouse censure from the inspection authority.

At the beginning of 2016 the communications service agreement with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company was prolonged for five years.
