OAO Yamal LNG has shipped the second millionth ton of LNG produced at its first LNG train.
Yamal LNG commenced shipments from December 2017 utilising Arc7 ice class carriers each holding 170 000 m3, or approximately 74 000 t of LNG. Yamal LNG reached the second millionth ton shipped on the 27th cargo loaded and dispatched at the Sabetta seaport from the first LNG train.
LNG deliveries under long-term contracts started in April 2018, with four LNG cargos already shipped under such commitments.
