GTT inks cooperation deal with Russia’s Zvezda shipyard

GTT, the French maker of LNG containment system has signed a cooperation agreement with Russian Zvezda shipyard.

The cooperation agreement evaluates the shipyard capacity to meet GTT construction standards particularly focused on safety and quality issues, according to a GTT statement.

This new partnership will permit the building of LNG carriers in Russia, dedicated to the transport of LNG coming from offshore plants.

GTT will provide its expertise to the shipyard for the membrane containment system construction and the material supply, as well as personnel training.

Zvezda shipyard is developed by the consortium of Rosneftegaz, Rosneft and Gazprombank.

The GTT membrane technology has already been chosen to equip the ice-breaking LNGCs for the Novatek-operated Yamal LNG project.

According to analyst’s forecasts, Russia should see an increase of its LNG production in the coming years, opening way to new ambitious LNG carrier and infrastructure projects, GTT noted in its statement.
