Primorskaya Zvezda will build ice-class gas carriers for NOVATEK
NOVATEK and the Zvezda shipyard being built in Primorye have agreed to build the ArcNNXX-class 14 gas carriers for the new LNG-7 gas liquefaction project. Shipping companies Sovkomflot and Canadian Teekay can obtain the rights to orders. Between them there is already a tender.
One of the risks of contracts remains the requirements of the state to carry out LNG transportation along the Northern Sea Route and cabotage only under the Russian flag. However, experts believe that placing an order on the "Star" will allow Novatek to achieve concessions. According to Kommersant, a pilot ship will be built on the Star. The option agreement also prescribed the possibility of assigning rights to an order to five or six companies. The price of construction is indicated as “market”, “as in Korea”.
The Ministry of Industry and Trade confirmed that NOVATEK signed a preliminary agreement with Zvezda. Now the ministry, together with “interested departments and organizations, is working on measures to support the construction of large-capacity vessels.
