  • The Pacific “Berkut” Oil Rig is the Biggest One | English.
  • Biggest oil rig ever: 200k-ton Sakhalin giant begins.



The Berkut Oil Rig is the biggest oil rig in the world, weighing in at a staggering 200,000 tons. Located in the Sea of Okhotsk on the Russian Pacific Coast just north of Japan, the rig is expected to extract 4.5 million tons of oil per year.

It has been built to exploit the vast oil reserves of the Arkutun-Dagi field, which spreads 60km from the Russian coast and contains recoverable oil reserves estimated at 72 million tons.

Berkut, which means ‘Golden Eagle’ in Russian, is believed to have cost around $12 billion to build. This huge investment was financed by the Sakhalin-1 Consortium, an international consortium of oil companies from the USA, Russia, Japan and India which includes ExxonMobil and Rosneft.

The investment is likely to pay huge dividends, with the Russian government expecting a windfall of $9 billion in tax revenues alone over the next decade.

The drilling platform can withstand a 9 magnitude earthquake, waves of up to 18 meters and temperatures down to minus 44 degrees Celsius, Rosneft President Igor Sechin said. Berkut can also withstand floating ice up to two meters thick and has an autonomous power supply system. It has the largest superstructure on any rig. Weighing 200,000 tons it can drill a total of 45 wells.

The platform is located 25 km offshore in waters up 35 meters deep. The drilling will be performed by means of a marine rig, which allows all-year-round drilling of wells.

There have been no accidents or critical failures during the platform's construction, Rosneft's Igor Sechin reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of the launch on Friday. The construction was completed on time and within budget.

The Sakhalin project, one of the largest in Europe, is located onshore and offshore of Sakhalin Island, a remote territory of the Russian Far East with a water depth up to 48 m / 158 ft.

After years of planning, engineering and construction, the Berkut platform was installed on the Arkutun-Dagi field and began operations on June 27, 2014.

William Jacob Management contributed to the success of the Arkutun-Dagi offshore project, an offshore oil and gas development on Sakhalin Island located on the east coast of Russia. The massive production platform was previously under construction at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) yard in Korea.

Caterpillar Oil and Gas  announced today that Russia’s largest offshore oil and gas platform  has been outfitted with BeCat ® 3500 diesel generator sets.  The massive gravity-based structure will be named Berkut and installed in Sakhalin-1’s Arkutun-Dagi field, a joint ExxonMobil – Neftegas Project.

Three Cat 3516B (HD) generator sets will provide both essential and emergency power for the fixed platform. Each generator set can provide 2000 ekW @ 1500 rpm (50 Hz) of rated power. The platform also features 3x Cat 3412 fire pumps .

“Regardless of how severe the Arctic conditions become, the Cat 3516B (HD) generator sets will serve as a reliable power source for the platform,” said Sergey Chernyshov, Caterpillar Oil and Gas CIS territory manager. “In addition to the reliable, innovative performance of the 3516 power products, Caterpillar enjoys a unique ability to collaborate with the local Cat dealer to meet the highly customized specifications and our ability to fully support the product in the harsh environmental conditions.
