Yamal LNG

Case Study


Yamal LNG is an integrated project in Russia encompassing natural gas production, liquefaction and shipping. Extensive transportation infrastructure will be built, including an Arctic sea port and an international airport.


  • The project required a strictly national workforce with the necessary skills, background and knowledge to start work on the project quickly and without entry barriers
  • Only one source of LNG experts within Russia with engineer salaries above market
  • Majority of oil, gas and petrochemical engineers and managers from local plants did not possess enough expertise to be considered

  • Arranged an in-depth analytic map of Russian refineries
  • Held regular calls with both HR and Line Managers to ensure a full understanding of specifics and technical requirements of each position


  • Constant communication between Airswift and our client enabled them to change the motivations of candidates from money to career advantages and professional development, resulting in candidates accepting offers lower than their existing salaries
  • Submitted over 600 candidates with more than 60 placements made, from Shift Supervisors to Plant Directors
  • Considered a key supplier of highly skilled workforces for Yamal LNG and Airswift has become synonymous with the project among Russian oil and gas specialist and managers


"Airswift picked up a very good team of highly qualified employees for the Yamal LNG Plant Laboratory. After a few months, some of them received a promotion to a higher position. It was a very fruitful co-operation."
