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.
