PAO NOVATEK announces the first supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the Yamal LNG project to Japan along the eastern route of the Northern Sea Route, which was carried out by a subsidiary of the Company NOVATEK Gas & Power Asia Pte. Ltd.

The consignment was delivered by the Vladimir Rusanov gas carrier under a spot contract. In full compliance with the schedule, the unloading was carried out at the Ohgishima LNG Terminal in Japan. This is the first successful experience of calling and unloading an ice-class LNG carrier Arc 7 in a Japanese port, which will further increase the volume of LNG supplies to this country.

“We pay great attention to the development of the logistics chain of our LNG projects,” said Lev Feodosiev, First Deputy Chairman of the Management Board of PAO NOVATEK. “The planned commissioning of a transshipment terminal in Kamchatka will significantly expand the possibilities for competitive LNG supplies throughout the Asia-Pacific region.”
