According to Reuters, the Georgiy Ushakov and Yakov Gakkel LNG tankers are both currently undergoing sea trials around a South Korean shipyard.

These carriers are the last of 15 Arc7-classed tankers that have been ordered for the Yamal LNG project in Russia. Refinitiv Eikon data shows that they are both currently in the water at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) Okpo Shipyard undergoing the trials.

Reuters reports that the Vladimir Voronin, meanwhile, has completed its trials. The vessel has left the Sea of Japan and is heading to the Yamal LNG project via the Northern Sea Route through the Bering Straits, turning west at Russia’s northeastern tip.
