Sovcomflot wins the Exxon Neftegas "Contractor of the Year - 2012" award


SCF Group announces it has won the Exxon Neftegas Limited (ENL) “Contractor  of the Year- 2012” award for its workforce protection and safety.

The  official award ceremony took place in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk at the annual Safety  Forum, organised by Exxon Neftegas Limited, operator of the Sakhalin-1  project.

The award was made to SCF Unicom - a subsidiary company of SCF Group based in  Sakhalin - for the safety and quality of its work undertaken as part of the  Sakhalin-1 project.
ENL’s representative, Jason Brown, expressed his  appreciation to the staff of the company and praised the exemplary operation of  the icebreaking supply vessel SCF Sakhalin, its highly professional crew and the  supporting shore personnel.

Several Sovocmflot vessels operate as part of the  Sakhalin-1 project: four Aframax shuttle tankers (Yuri Senkevich, Captain  Kostichev, Viktor Konetsky and Viktor Titov) and the icebreaking supply vessel  SCF Sakhalin.
Another two modern ice-class supply vessels, which will service  the Arktun Dagi field as part of the Sakhalin-1 project, are currently in the  final stages of construction.

In the summer of 2012, the Group successfully transported and installed the  lower base of the Berkut production platform at the Arkutun Dagi field. This  project was the first large-scale engineering operation in the sphere of  offshore field servicing.

Evgeniy Ambrosov, Senior Executive Vice-President  of OAO Sovcomflot, said: "I should like to express my gratitude to our valued  partner, Exxon Neftegas Limited, for its trust and long-term successful  cooperation in the Sakhalin-1 project. We are delighted to win such a  prestigious award. I should also like to thank the whole contracting team  working on this technically challenging project, as well as all the other staff  involved with it, with whom our work would not have achieved such a high level  of recognition. This award further demonstrates the professionalism of SCF  Group, in the area of safe navigation in harsh climatic conditions, and  underlines our motto of “Safety Comes First!”
