Novatek introduced in the present day that Novatek-Western Arctic, a completely owned subsidiary, accomplished Russia’s first ship-to-ship LNG transshipment within the Kildin Strait of the Barents Sea. The Arc7 ice-class LNG tanker Nikolay Yevgenov efficiently reloaded an LNG cargo delivered from the Yamal LNG facility at Sabetta to the standard tanker Yamal Spirit.
The ship-to-ship switch was performed at a short lived LNG Offshore Transshipment Complex within the Murmansk area inside the seaport of Murmansk. The LNG Transshipment Complex will guarantee uninterrupted year-round LNG transshipment from the ice-class tankers carrying LNG produced within the Russian Arctic to traditional LNG tankers.
The transshipment operations have been performed in compliance with all relevant Russian environmental necessities, and included representatives from Novatek-Western Arctic, the Russian and overseas shipowners, auxiliary fleet operators and the LNG transshipment operators. The security of navigation was ensured by the seaport of Murmansk and Rosmorport.
The ship-to-ship transshipment advanced within the Murmansk Region represents one other important milestone in creating Novatek’s LNG provide chain from the LNG amenities situated within the Russian Arctic to the worldwide pure gasoline consuming markets. The creation of the transshipment infrastructure permits the Company to develop its inside competencies to carry out LNG transshipment within the Russian Federation, in addition to optimizing the Arctic tanker fleet.
