A vessel capable of completing the SP-2, headed from Singapore to Europe


Russia continues to prepare to complete the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline on its own.


As follows from scattered media reports and bloggers citing data from the Marinetraffic navigation portal, the Akademik Chersky pipe layer made a sea voyage from Nakhodka and arrived on a weekend in Singapore.

It has been suggested that in Singapore a Russian ship may be delayed for refitting. However, this afternoon, the Akademik Cherskiy pipelayer transmitted information via the automated identification system (AIS) that the ship had already headed for the port of Colombo.

According to the blogger Ruslan Nakhushev, the “Academician Chersky” follows through the Suez Canal to St. Petersburg, where a welding and technological equipment of a well-known European company that won the tender and has its own production site in the Leningrad region of Russia.

In addition, before starting work, the Russian pipe-layer needs to carry out an average repair of the main propulsion system, screw and gross chassis.

If there are no problems along the route of the Academician Chersky, the arrival of the vessel in St. Petersburg is scheduled for April 1.

    What are the idiots in the management of Gazprom !!! A few months ago it was known that the construction site would rise. What prevented the ship from dropping in advance?

        And the fact that before it could come and not drown, or get under arrest, you had no doubt? laughing All these threats appeared, only as greed was overpowered? smile

      Everyone imagines himself a strategist, seeing the battle from afar.

      Did it ever occur to you that the light didn’t converge on the SP-2? Maybe the ship was busy with other work, for which, in fact, it was bought. Given the problem, we have two unknowns, how far the Americans will go in their sanctions, and also how far the "small intestine" of European companies will be. Taking and sending a ship from the Far East to the Baltic, guided by threats from the State Department, is not an obvious decision, especially since it also needs to be re-equipped. There will not be enough ships to respond to every threat.

        Maybe the ship was another job ...

        Maybe you will learn how to use a search engine? Before voicing his fantasies, it would not hurt to familiarize himself with where this ship was and what it was doing.

        And it never occurred to me that if you are starting a multi-billion dollar project, then be kind enough to measure it not 7 times, but 77 times. This is what professional managers do. Unfortunately, Gazprom has effective managers.

          But it never occurred to me that if you are starting a multi-billion dollar project, then be kind enough to measure it not 7 times, but 77 times.

          It is quite reasonable, but not always practicable. Do you think that you can foresee and calculate absolutely everything for a conversation? You can measure 777 times, this is not a guarantee of success.

          This is what professional managers do.

          Can you give an example of such managers or is this a personal opinion, just think so?

          Unfortunately, Gazprom has effective managers.

          What are the criteria for determining?

      I will say more. They don’t see beyond their nose. What is a strategy - they have no idea.
      What prevented 15 years ago, when there were no sanctions, even before all the "flows", to order and build your own ship? And during this time, with the help of foreign advisers-consultants, to learn the command of competent operation of such a specialized vessel. It is not enough to own such a ship. You also need to have a trained team.

        You know. what is the strategy for the gas market?

        What prevented 15 years ago, when there were no sanctions, even before all the "flows", to order and build your own ship?

        Look at the state of the shipbuilding industry. and the country as a whole 15 years ago, perhaps you will find the answer to this question. In 2005, militants walked around Nalchik. What at one time prevented the USSR from establishing its own production of pipes for gas pipelines, rather than buying them from Germany? Also no strategists?

        And during this time, with the help of foreign advisers, consultants learn the team of competent operation of such a specialized vessel. After all, it is not enough to own such a ship. It is also necessary to have a trained team.

        If a ship is being built, they plan to use it, and not train the team on it for 15 years. Can you even imagine how much such training will cost? There is simply nowhere to operate these vessels (one can’t do this, this is a whole flotilla). Where do you think pipelines have been built all these 15 years? Pipeline companies, units. It’s cheaper to use their services than to develop everything from scratch. If you need to dig one trench, I think you won’t buy an excavator.
        And it’s easy to reason like this. it was necessary to do this 15 years ago, and not this, easily. And 30 years ago the USSR didn’t have to collapse, and in the 1612th Poles were allowed to go to Moscow.
        I do not consider Gazprom’s leadership to be brilliant strategists, but it’s also not worth making idiots out of them. Something like this. hi

          I agree. You can’t make complete idiots out of Gazprom’s leadership. They are half. Such people are called half-pokers.

            Excuse me, how did you determine this? recourse I have the impression that you are half the same "Gazprom" employee. smile Will we discuss the criteria or will you take it on faith?

            Such people are called half-pokers.

            The people call semi-poker a few other people. winked

              We will not argue. Why? Because! When I hear in response - I think that you .......... or - I get the opinion that you ....... I remember: "That's it, the Kalabukhov house is gone."

                We will not, well, okay. Determine who is and who is not, with the argument "Because!" it's a thankless job.

    They run around with this "Chersky" like fools with a written sack! They ring in bast shoes about every turn of the screw in Moscow! Yes, take the ship to the Baltic, and complete the SP-2! Then, shout for joy, and spit into the White House in Washington at a run! And then:

    A chicken is perched, eggs are in the tail, and now they are selling chickens with might and main in the market!
