The Fluxys-operated Zeebrugge liquefied natural gas terminal is conducting its first-ever transshipment of the chilled fuel sourced from Novatek’s Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic, according to the port of Zeebrugge.

The first simultaneous transshipment of Yamal LNG via shore pipes at the Zeebrugge facility started on Monday night, the port said in a statement via its social media channels.

The LNG is being transferred from the ice-class carrier Eduard Toll onto the Gazprom-chartered LNG tanker Pskov.

Pskov is expected to depart Zeebrugge on May 3 to its final destination in Asia, the port data shows.

Zeebrugge received its first Yamal LNG delivery last month onboard the ice-class LNG tanker Fedor Litke.

In 2015, the Fluxys-operated terminal was selected by Yamal LNG as transshipment hub under a long-term deal. The contract includes an annual transshipment of about 107 LNG cargoes.

The ice-class tankers carrying volumes from Yamal LNG regularly transfer cargoes at European terminals during winter, where conventional vessels pick them up for delivery to Asia or other higher-paying markets.

During Arctic summer, Yamal LNG will be delivering the chilled fuel to Asian-Pacific markets via the Northern Sea Route.
