As the largest private shareholder in Sakhalin Oil and Gas Development Co., Ltd., ITOCHU was participating in the planning of the Sakhalin I Project, an oil and gas development project on Sakhalin, which is the closest supply source for Japan. Commercial production of crude oil and natural gas has been under way since 2005 there.

ITOCHU is responsible for marketing activities for the large-scale gas field development of Phase 2, which is to supply gas to Japan through pipelines.

ITOCHU has been expanding and promoting its business in Russia from the period of the former Soviet Union. Development projects of natural resources in Sakhalin and pipeline projects are just particular examples of that kind of business.
