Novatek wants to expand the boundaries of the seaport in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky
The Novatek company wants to expand the boundaries of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky seaport to the waters of the Bechevinsky bay. The investor needs it to work with foreign vessels that will approach the terminal for transshipment of liquefied natural gas. The company plans to submit an application for the expansion of borders in the first quarter of this year.
According to the press service of the regional government, the company will deliver liquefied natural gas along the Northern Sea Route to Bechevinsky Bay from Yamal LNG and in the future Arctic LNG 2 by ice-class tankers. Through the terminal located there, LNG will be transferred to gas carriers for delivery to the APR countries.
As the deputy chairman of the Kamchatka Krai government, Yuri Zubar, noted, nothing will change in terms of the project’s scope and timing. Its implementation, according to the deputy chairman, should give impetus to the development of related businesses: ship repair, bunkering of ships, attraction of other ships and cargoes to the ports of the peninsula. Now the regional authorities are working with partners from the Leningrad Region, who are creating a deep-water port, and are planning to build berths in Kamchatka for transporting containers and general cargo along the Northern Sea Route.
