Yamal LNG completes the first ship-to-ship LNG transshipment
November 26, 2018
NOVATEK announced that its joint venture Yamal LNG completed the first ship-to-ship LNG transshipment in the area near the port of Honningsvag in northern Norway. The Arc7 ice-class LNG tanker “Vladimir Rusanov” successfully reloaded an LNG cargo delivered from the Yamal LNG facility at Sabetta to the lower ice-class designated tanker “Pskov”, which then delivered the reloaded cargo to customers in North-West Europe.
Lev Feodosyev, NOVATEK’s First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board mentioned that this transshipment allowed the company to optimize its transport costs by decreasing the travel distance of the Arc7 ice-class tankers and to ensure timely offloading of LNG from Yamal LNG project.
