LQT constructs arctic accommodation facility for Sakhalin offshore operations
The construction of the facility was performed at LQT’s facility in Abbeville, LA and then disassembled and transported by truck to the Port of Houston where it was shipped to Sakhalin Island, Russia

The facility consists of 10 aluminium modular units made up of living quarters, recreation rooms, and utility rooms to accommodate 96 personnel on a drilling platform. The exterior stairs and walkways included with the facility are completely enclosed with aluminium barriers to protect the occupants from the harsh weather environments the subarctic region produces.

The facility was designed and built to comply with Russian regulatory groups, including certifications from GOST (Russian State Union Standard) and IPEIG.

The construction of the facility was performed at LQT’s facility in Abbeville, LA and then disassembled and transported by truck to the Port of Houston where it was shipped to Sakhalin Island, Russia.

LQT deployed eight employees to Russia to provide management support for the assembly and commissioning of the facility where they received three different awards for outstanding safety awareness and safe work practices.
