Yamal LNG has announced that it has successfully shipped its 20 millionth tonne of LNG since the project started operating.

According to the statement, the Vladimir Voronin Arc7 ice-class tanker loaded the 273rd cargo as the project reached 20 million t of LNG produced since the startup of Train 1 in December 2017. Yamal claims that the Vladimir Voronin is the 12th Arc7 ice-class tanker built specifically for the Yamal LNG project.

There are three liquefaction trains currently operating at the project, with a cumulative nameplate production capacity of 16.5 million tpy. The first LNG train began production in 4Q17, whilst trains 2 and 3 started operating in July 2018 and November 2018, respectively. The project utilises the hydrocarbon resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field in the Russian Arctic.

Yamal LNG shareholders include PAO NOVATEK (50.1%), Total (20%), CNPC (20%), and the Silk Road Fund (9.9%).
