Yamal LNG, a subsidiary of Novatek, has reported taking delivery of the 15th Arc7 LNG tanker built for the project, the “Yakov Gakkel”. The 354th shipment of liquefied gas produced by Yamal LNG and destined for China was loaded onto the “Yakov Gakkel” in Sabetta.
‘The Project’s Arc7 ice-class fleet is capable of shipping all of the LNG produced given the increased performance of the first three LNG trains and the planned launch of Train 4. The presence of all 15 Arc7 ice-class tankers creates additional opportunities from 2020 for optimizing the Project’s logistics both westbound and eastbound, including the more extensive use of the Northern Sea Route’, the company said in a statement.
