These projects include Novatek’s Yamal LNG, Arctic LNG 2 and other Arctic projects of the company.

“Our unique partnership with Sovcomflot will optimize our LNG transport model through the Arctic zone by efficiently and effectively using ice-class tankers,” Novatek’s chairman Leonid Mikhelson said.

He added that to implements the company’s strategy of producing over 55 mtpa of LNG by 2030, establishing an efficient Northern Sea Route shipping model is essential.

Mikhelsen believes the move will enable the company to maximize efficiency in managing transportation costs.
