Second LNG-Powered Aframax Completes NSR Passage

  • On 30 October at 23:59 Moscow time, “Lomonosov Prospect”, Sovcomflot’s second large-capacity tanker using LNG fuel as its primary fuel, successfully completed a commercial voyage along the Northern Sea Route to deliver a cargo of petroleum products from South Korea to Northern Europe.

    According to Sovcomflot, the high-latitude voyage from Cape Dezhnev at Chukotka to Cape Zhelaniya of the Novaya Zemlya archipelago took the Arc4 vessel 7.8 days to complete, during which the tanker covered a distance of 2194 nautical miles, including some 950 miles in ice conditions.

    During the most difficult part of the route, in the East Siberian Sea, the tanker joined the ice convoy escorted by Rosatomflot-operated “Taimyr” nuclear icebreaker.

    At present, the tanker is proceeding to the port of discharge.
