Spotted: Yamal LNG Simultaneously Transferred in Zeebrugge


Liquefied natural gas from Sabetta on the Siberian peninsula Yamal was for the first time transhipped simultaneously in Zeebrugge from an ice class vessel (ARC7) into a conventional LNG carrier for further transport to Asia on May 1.

The Russian ice class vessel Eduard Toll transfered simutaneously LNG into the LNG tanker Pskov via shore pipes.

The operation took place at quays 615 and 616 of the Fluxys terminal in the outer port.

Fluxys was selected as transhipment hub for liquefied Siberian natural gas from the Yamal gasfield in 2015.

The contract constitutes for Zeebrugge an annual transhipment of 107 LNG loads from ice class vessels to conventional LNG vessels or 214 vessel movements in the port.

In winter time, when the northern sea routes are frozen in Siberia, the ice class LNG vessels will shuttle from Sabetta to Zeebrugge.
