Russia’s Yamal LNG has shipped 2 million tonnes of LNG since it began operations at its first LNG train. The LNG produced at Yamal LNG commenced shipments from December 2017 utilising Arc7 ice class carriers each holding 170,000 cbm, or approximately 74,000 tonnes of LNG. Yamal LNG reached the two million tonne milestone on the 27th cargo loaded and dispatched at the Sabetta seaport from the first LNG train.
LNG deliveries under long-term contracts started in April 2018, with four LNG cargos already shipped under such commitments.
In April, the first firing of compressor gas turbines was performed at the second LNG train comprising 5.5 million tons per annum, which represents one of the key milestones in the preparation of the train’s upcoming launch.
Yamal LNG is constructing a 16.5 mmtpa natural gas liquefaction plant utilising the hydrocarbon resources of the South-Tambeyskoye field on the Yamal peninsula located in the Arctic territory of the Russian Federation. The first LNG train commenced LNG production in the fourth quarter 2017 with the loading of the inaugural tanker on 8 December 2017.
