Russian shipping company Sovcomflot has ordered an LNG carrier at compatriot Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex.

The ship is scheduled for delivery in 2022, according to data provided by Asiasis.

Sovcomflot and Zvezda signed an agreement for the construction of the gas carrier on April 5, 2019, local media reported.

Subsequently, Sovcomflot and Russian gas producer Novatek inked a 25-year charter deal for the newbuilding.

As informed, the new Arc7 icebreaking LNG carrier will serve the Arctic LNG 2 project.

Arctic LNG 2 production will be delivered to international markets by a fleet of ice-class LNG carriers that will be able to use the Northern Sea Route and a transshipment terminal in Kamchatka for cargoes destined for Asia and one close to Murmansk for those cargoes destined for Europe.

The final investment decision is expected in 2019, with plans to start up the first train by the end of 2023.
