The two ships took 19 days to complete their voyage from the port of Sabetta through the Northern Sea Route to the destination port, considerably cut when compared to 35 days for the traditional eastern route via the Suez Canal and the Strait of Malacca, Novatek said.

“This voyage begins a new era of Russian LNG shipments to meet the growing natural gas demands of the Asian-Pacific markets using the Northern Sea Route of the Arctic Ocean,”  Leonid Mickhelson, Chairman of Novatek’s Management Board, said.

“The Northern Sea Route ensures shorter transportation time and lower costs, which plays a key role in developing our hydrocarbon fields on the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas. Our vast high-quality, conventional natural gas resource base combined with low capital intensity and operation and transportation costs positions Novatek’s LNG projects among the most competitive projects globally.”

Novatek commenced shipping via the Northern Sea Route in 2010 carrying liquid hydrocarbons by high-tonnage tankers to the Asian-Pacific countries.

Now, the company is shipping Russian LNG along the route with its purpose-built LNG-carriers, which are able to cross the Russian Arctic region without the escort of an ice-breaker.

To ensure a good penetration and good filling, the grabs have high dead weight. The spaces between the shells are relative small to minimise the risk of material loss.
The grab hydraulic cylinders are fitted with replaceable piston rod protections and are hydraulically cushioned. Wide opening ranges guarantee a good penetration and release behavior. 
The orange peel grabs are available with rotator or integrated rotation (heavy duty) with sturdy slewing, depending on the type.
The heavy duty version features solid end stops, accurate fittings, reinforced bolts and large bearing surfaces amongst others.
