Yamal LNG increases shipments via NSR

Published by
LNG Industry,


Pao Novatek has announced that 15 LNG cargos from the company’s Yamal LNG project were shipped eastbound to the Asian Pacific markets directly via the Northern Sea Route (NSR) during 3Q19.

These eastbound shipments represented about 25% of all LNG dispatched from Yamal LNG during the quarter. Planned 2019 volumes of LNG delivered eastbound to the Asian Pacific markets via the NSR will be increased by more than four times compared to last year.

A current fleet of 13 Arc7 ice-class tankers along with lower ice-class designated tankers to transport LNG cargos support the Yamal LNG project. The full complement of 15 Arc7 ice-class tankers are expected to be in operation by end of 2019, which will increase the number of direct LNG deliveries eastbound via the NSR.

“The increase of LNG delivered eastbound via the NSR confirms the commercial priority of the Asia-Pacific region as a strategic direction for future deliveries of Novatek’s LNG,” noted Lev Feodosyev, Novatek’s First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board. “Developing further the navigational efficiency via the NSR combined with the construction of LNG transshipment complexes in Kamchatka and Murmansk will optimise the company’s logistics chain.”
