Ltd. produces 48,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

The Molikpaq platform was installed northeast of Sakhalin, 16 km offshore, at a depth of 30 m. In the winter, the temperature, including the wind chill, can be as cold as -70° F.

Honeywell will implement its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), to modernize the process control system and improve safety. The unified access to process control, production management and asset management, the distributed control system will help to improve efficiency and profitability, reduce total cost of ownership while helping the facility achieve optimum production of oil. 

In addition, Honeywell will install its DynAMo Alarm Suite, which is designed to help users reduce overall alarm count by as much as 80% as well as identify maintenance issues and increase visibility of critical alarms that require urgent attention.
