LNG shipping giant Teekay released a time-lapse video showing its first Arctic liquefied natural gas carrier, the 172,000-cbm Eduard Toll transiting the Northern Sea Route.

Teekay took the delivery of the Eduard Toll late in January. It is the fourth of 15 Arc7 LNG carriers being built for the Novatek-operated Yamal LNG project in Russia and Teekay’s first of six newbuildings contracted to service the project.

Soon after delivery, Eduard Toll made its way to complete both its first loading at Sabetta terminal in Russia and first discharge in Montoir, France, Teekay said.

This marked a major milestone for shipping in the Arctic as this was the first time a shipping vessel made independent passage, without the support of an icebreaker, during this time of year, it added.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
