A twelve-member group of the Federation Council legislators has begun to study how the Sakhalin-2 oil and gas development project is being implemented.

The group is led by the head of the Federation Council committee for natural resources and environmental protection, Viktor Orlov.

Legislators have already held a meeting with their counterparts on Sakhalin, the regional administration's press service said.

On November 17, they are expected to visit a gas liquefying plant being under construction in the village of Prigorodnoye in the Bay of Aniva.

The Federation Council's interest to this project is evoked by unceasing rows over Sakhalin-2 and accusations by the Russian environmental watchdog of the project's operator in multiple environmental norms violations.

The upper house's legislators want to see a grand site of construction of oil and gas offshore development facilities on the Sakhalin Island with their own eyes to give their own opinion.
