Sakhalin Region's authorities offer to Russky Alyuminy (Rusal) united company to build an aluminum factory on the island. Rusal is far from the final decision, but it thoroughly studies the offer. Experts believe that Sakhalin project might be of interest to Rusal, but only if the company gives up its other, far more expensive project in the Far East: building a factory and a nuclear power plant together with the Russian Atomic Energy Agency.

Rusal is considering the opportunity to build an aluminum factory on the Sakhalin island. Local authorities have also invited Rusal to join the project for constructing an electric power station with 330 megawatt capacity in the Uglegorsky region.

Rusal is not sure yet whether it wants to join the project. "We are now examining the local authorities' initiative," the company said. Besides, it had signed an agreement with the Russian Atomic Energy Agency for building a new atomic power plant with 2,000 megawatt of capacity and an aluminum factory with capacity of 600,000 metric tons.

Experts believe Rusal will not start two Far East projects at a time. They say, Rusal will hardly undertake building another factory in the region if the deal with the Russian Atomic Agency, worth nearly $6 billion, is ratified.
