Safe Operation Supporting Yamal LNG Project

Safe Operation Supporting Yamal LNG Project

MOL supports groundbreaking developments to meet continually expanding global demand for energy, contributing to the world with our advanced transport services. In May 2016, construction of our first vessel for the Yamal LNG project (and the fifth overall to serve the project) started at the Okpo shipyard of Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd.in South Korea. The first vessel was delivered in January 2018. Then all parties involved in the project took part in an ice-breaking performance test in the Kara Sea in Russia. After these stringent tests confirmed that the vessel can safely navigate the Arctic Ocean, it started transport service.

For the March 2018 press release,
Ice-Breaking LNG Carrier "Vladimir Rusanov" for Yamal LNG Project Started the First Loading Operation in the Yamal LNG Plant at Sabetta Port

Potential of Arctic Ocean Routes

Potential of Arctic Ocean Routes

The new Arctic Ocean route that starts along the Russian coast through the Bering Straits has gained a lot of attention internationally. This project is also aimed at transporting LNG to East Asia via the route during the summer seasons.
Assuming a vessel speed of 15 knots on this northern route, cargo can reach East Asia in 15 days, which is significantly less than the 35 days that is usually needed via the Suez Canal. The northern voyage can be accomplished with approximately 30% less fuel as well. In addition, on the Arctic Ocean route, there is no need to worry about pirates because we can transport LNG without going near the coast of Somalia or through the Malacca Straits. By making effective use of u the Arctic Ocean route, we can contribute to a more stable supply of resources.

New Challenge to LNG Transport

New Challenge to LNG Transport

MOL marked a new milestone in LNG transport from the Arctic Ocean with a ship-to-ship transfer operation to unload to a lower ice class LNG carrier at Honningsvåg, Norway, in November 2018. MOL continually meets new challenges as it works proactively to diversify LNG transport.

For the November 2018 press release:

Highest Safe and Robust Ship Designs against Heavy Ice and Severely Cold Environments

Highest Safe and Robust Ship Designs against Heavy Ice and Severely Cold Environments

Kara Sea, where faces the Yamal LNG terminal, is the area where entirely freezes in winter season. Average temperature is about -30°C and sometimes lowers to about -50°C in winter. Safe operation is achieved with support of crewmembers. MOL engages in development of the environment that allows for them to thoroughly demonstrate their skills even under severe natural environment.
