    Tell him that all the inhabitants there are decendants from Russian prisoners (murderes, thieves, etc.) and that he should keep looking east, in case Japan decides to take back their part of the islands. His nervousness should only be abated by his company pushed out by a hostile take-over by Gazprom!

    According to this line, I don't think it's Sakhalin. It's more like some islands in Arctic Ocean. May be somewere in Shtokman field area (Barents Sea):

    http://mosnews.com/money/2006/12/08/shtokman.shtml

    But I'm not quite sure, according to this:

    http://www.turkishdailynews.com.tr/a...?enewsid=56344

    I know it's about gas, but the area has a plenty of oil deposites too.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    It can't be stockman, they haven't selected the contractors yet!

    I think people always assume "frozen, barren hell" when it comes to Siberia

    Sakhalin is located in Pacific Ocean several thousands kilometers away from Siberia and the climate there is rather temperate. Far East and Siberia are different separate regions.
    BTW, I didn't tell that it can be Stockman gas deposit. I heard somewere that they have several oil contracts in that area signed.

    I know they are

    But for a typical westerner they think every single square meter of Russia is a cold, barren hell

    Здесь http://film.arjlover.net/film/ лежит фильм "Злой дух Ямбуя", где очень здорово показана природа Восточной Сибири. Кино очень интересное.
