The project was announced commercial in October 2001. Total reserves are estimated at 2.3 billion barrels (370×106 m3) of oil and 485 billion cubic metres (17.1 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas. Phase I of the project consists of expansion of Chayvo field onshore processing facility and a 225-kilometre (140 mi) pipeline for transportation of crude oil westward across Sakhalin Island and Tatar Strait to De-Kastri terminal in the Russian Far East. The consortium reached its peak production rate of 250,000 barrels (34,000 metric tonnes) of oil in February 2007.
WWF and other environmental protection NGOs have criticized the consortium for dangers to environment and traditional lifestyle of indigenous population of Sakhalin caused by the production activities.
