First STS Operation for Yamal LNG

  • November 24, the first ship-to-ship transfer operation for the Yamal LNG Project was completed at the safe anchorage off the port of Honningsvag in northern Norway.

    Sovcomflot-owned “Pskov” loaded some 170,000 cubic meters of liquefied gas from MOL-operated Arc7 LNG carrier “Vladimir Rusanov”.

    Upon completion of the transshipment, “Pskov” proceeded toward the planned port of discharge in North-West Europe.

    First STS Operation for Yamal LNG“The first ship-to-ship LNG transshipment is a very important commercial milestone for us,” noted First Deputy Chairman of the Novatek Management Board Lev Feodosyev. “This approach allows us to optimize our transport costs by decreasing the travel distance of the Arc7 ice-class tankers and to ensure timely offloading of LNG from Yamal LNG project”.

    “The experience we gain from ship-to-ship LNG transshipments will be used at our future large-scale LNG transshipment projects in Kamchatka and the Murmansk region, according us the opportunity to build an efficient logistics chain for our LNG projects”, he said.

    According to Sovcomflot, the company’s two conventional LNG carriers, “Pskov” and “SCF Melampus”, are expected to be engaged in STS operations for Yamal LNG.
