The Novatek-operated Yamal liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant in the Russian Arctic shipped in total seventeen cargoes of the fuel in the first three months of this year, according to local customs data.

The LNG plant, Russia’s second such facility, shipped in total 1.26 million tonnes of LNG and 108,316 tonnes of gas condensate or six cargoes in the January-March period, data by the Yamalo-Nenets customs office said.

These shipments were sent to the UK, France, the Netherlands, Spain and Belgium, it said.

Novatek started shipping LNG from its giant Yamal LNG plant in December 2017. The three-train Yamal LNG plant is designed to produce about 16.5 million tonnes per year.

Currently, only the first liquefaction train is in operation with the second one expected to enter service this year and the third unit in 2019.

The Arc7 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.
