Russia’s largest independent natural gas producer Novatek said that Yamal LNG has produced 9.0 million tons of LNG and 0.6 million tons of stable gas condensate in the first half of 2019.

All three LNG trains were running above nameplate capacity in the first half of 2019, the company said in its statement.

For the same period, 126 LNG tanker shipments were dispatched.

Most of the LNG was transshipped from the ice-class LNG carriers to conventional vessels in Norway and delivered to the markets. From the start of transshipment in November 2018, 123 ship-to-ship transfer operations have been conducted, Novatek said.

Yamal LNG is a 17.4 mtpa natural gas liquefaction plant comprised of three LNG trains of 5.5 mtpa each, with one LNG train of 900,000 tons per annum, currently under construction. The project is utilizing the hydrocarbon resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field in the Russian Arctic.

The first LNG train began production in the fourth quarter of 2017 and trains 2 and 3 – in July 2018 and November 2018, respectively.

Yamal LNG shareholders include Novatek (50.1 percent), Total (20 percent), CNPC (20 percent), and the Silk Road Fund (9.9 percent).
