Yamal LNG, a joint venture liquefied natural gas production project in Sabetta, Russia, has shipped its ten millionth ton of LNG since the commencement of the project.

As informed, the 136th cargo offloaded onto the Arc7 ice-class tanker Vladimir Vize reached 10 million tons of LNG produced since the start-up of Train 1 in December 2017.

Vladimir Vize is one of several Arc7 ice-class tankers supporting the project. The 168,560 cbm ship was built by South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in October 2018.

Yamal LNG is constructing a 17.4 mtpa natural gas liquefaction plant comprised of three LNG trains of 5.5 mtpa each and one LNG train of 900 thousand tons per annum, utilizing the hydrocarbon resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field in the Russian Arctic. The three liquefaction trains have a total nameplate capacity of 16.5 million metric tons per annum (mmtpa).

The first LNG Train began production in Q4 2017 and Trains 2 and 3 — in July 2018 and November 2018, respectively.

Yamal LNG is owned and operated by a partnership comprised of Novatek (50.1%), Total (20%), CNPC (20%), and the Silk Road Fund (9.9%). It aims to tap natural gas reserves totaling more than 4 billion barrels of oil equivalent (BOE).
