Putin announces the nationalization of a huge American project in Russia

9th October, 2022

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree establishing a new operator for the Sakhalin 1 oil and gas project led by ExxonMobil (XOM.N) in Russia’s Far East

Putin’s move affecting Exxon’s largest investment in Russia mimics the strategy he has used to control other energy properties in the country. The decree gives the Russian government the power to decide whether foreign shareholders can hold stakes in the project

Exxon holds a 30% stake in the operator in Sakhalin-1, with Russia’s Rosneft (ROSN.MM), India’s ONGC Videsh (ONVI.NS) and Japan’s SODECO as partners. Oil production at the Sakhalin 1 project fell to just 10,000 barrels in July from 220,000 bpd before Russia invaded Ukraine

Exxon has been trying to exit its operations in Russia and transfer its role in Sakhalin 1 to a partner since March, following international sanctions imposed on Moscow. The Russian government clashed with Exxon, with the oil producer threatening to refer the case to international arbitration


An official at Japan’s SODECO, which holds a 50% stake in the company, said it was gathering information and talking to partners as Japan had stopped buying crude from Russia since June. In this framework, a new Russian legal entity will assume the rights and responsibilities of the existing union of investors and operator of Exxon Neftegas

The foreign partners had a month to decide whether to keep their shares in the new company. Those who decide to withdraw will receive compensation adjusted for potential losses that emerged earlier this year amid the Sakhalin-1 production halt and Exxon halted production after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The companies participating in the project include “ExxonMobil”, “Rosneft“, “SODECO” of Japan and the Indian Oil and Natural Gas Company

The beginning of the crisis

Exxon said in early August that it was in talks to hand over its 30% stake to an as-yet-unnamed third party

The next day, Putin issued a decree banning the exit of foreign joint stock companies from several strategic projects, including Sakhalin 1, until the end of the year, but Exxon defied the decree. In this context, in July, Putin signed a similar decree on the transfer of operations of the “Sakhalin 2” natural gas project to a Russian entity

Shell Plc, which owns a 27.5% stake in the facility, said it was “quite unlikely” that it would take a stake in the new Sakhalin entity. Meanwhile, Japanese companies Mitsubishi Corp and Mitsui & Co. decided to maintain investments in a major LNG plant in Russia   L:INK
