The extraction from the bottom of the Sea of Okhotsk is yet experimental, but the platform is to begin to operate at full capacity by the end of the year, an official of the regional natural resources committee told ITAR-TASS.

Orlan is a part of the Sakhalin-1 project.

Apart from this platform, oil is extracted at the Yastreb coat facility.

Both platforms are to produce a full-scale 250,000 barrels a day (over 30,000 tons) by the end of the year.

Oil is also extracted in the Sea of Okhotsk under the Sakhalin-2 project from the Molipak platform.

The oil output is expected to reach 6 million tones this year, as against 4 million tons in 2005, the natural resources committee said.
