Teekay’s second Arctic carrier starts Yamal LNG charter
Teekay, one of the world’s largest LNG carrier owners, said its second ice-class LNG carrier, the Rudolf Samoylovich has started its charter with the Novatek-operated Yamal LNG.
Rudolph Samoylovich joins the Eduard Toll as the second of six Arc-7 LNG carriers that Teekay will provide to the Yamal LNG project by 2020.
The company noted the vessel started its charter at the start of September, following the request of the chartered to begin the deployment three months earlier than planned.
The vessel transited the Northern Sea Route after its delivery from the yard in Korea at the end of August.
Congratulations to the whole delivery team across Teekay in ensuring the vessel was ready to load cargo from the newly activated Yamal LNG train 2.
