LONDON -- Shell is completing the last major offshore gas well at the Lunskoye platform in the Sea of Okhotsk, preparing the way for full LNG production capacity at Sakhalin II.

Production at Sakhalin II's first LNG unit was under way in March. Completion of the final gas well is a vital step towards starting operations at its second LNG unit, the company says.

Shell expects Sakhalin to reach full capacity of 9.6 million metric tons/year in 2010.
