Moscow's transport plan in the Arctic is being implemented


Russia plans to make the Northern Sea Route a route for relatively fast delivery of goods from Europe to Asia, which will be possible due to the melting of ice and the development of appropriate of technologies.


Experts from La Vanguardia point out that the Russian company NOVATEK uses a fleet of 15 tankers to deliver liquefied gas from the port of Sabetta on Yamal to Asian customers. Each of these ships can carry up to 70 thousand tons of gas, while using its own capabilities to break sea ice up to two meters thick.

NOVATEK experts believe that the use of the Northern Sea Route, open for exploitation thanks to the melting of glaciers due to global warming, reduces the time for transporting goods from Europe to Asia by 40 percent, compared to the traditional route bypassing Europe to the west and through the Suez.

The Christophe de Margerie tanker became the first vessel to pass from the Arctic Ocean through the Bering Strait to Asia without the help of an icebreaker.

The centuries-old dream of Russian pioneers - to open year-round navigation in the eastern sector of the Arctic - is getting one step closer before our eyes

- noted the general director of Sovcomflot, which owns the tanker.

Implementing transport plans in the Arctic, Moscow intends to make the Northern Sea Route the main artery for the delivery of goods from Europe to Asia. Last year, Russia exported 32 million tons of gas in this way (1,5 million tons more than in 2019), by 2024 this figure may grow to 80 million tons, and by 2035 - up to 130 million tons.

    "Well-wishers". The second tanker "Nikolay Evgenov" also successfully completed the voyage. Without penalties. In time.

        And Europe has to do with it. We are talking about the winter passages of LNG tankers in January without icebreaker support from Sabetta on Yamal to Asia. Who are you giggling at from the Outskirts?

          SO LIKE TO ASIA RUSSIA pulled the pipe, where did it get lost? No matter how anyone speaks, until the ice melts, gas carriers to Asia hate gas. They couldn’t take the goods to Antarctica in clear water, the propeller fell off, and along the Northern Route, ice meets!

            Chudik. It's not about the pipe here. The tankers also carry gas with LNG from Yamal and Sakhalin, and by a different company.

            There are as many as 12 admirals in your entire mosquito fleet. This is the scale. Heh heh. Rest already a hard worker.

      There is no need to wait until the ice melts, there will be a new technology for melting ice!
      From the article:

      ... relatively fast delivery of goods from Europe to Asia, which will be possible thanks to the melting ice and the development of appropriate technologies its melting.

      By the way, I am very confused by the CEO's quote from the article:

      The centuries-old dream of Russian pioneers is to open year-round navigation in the eastern sector of the Arctic ...

      I was taught in high school that the dream of all pioneers was to discover new territories (i.e. land) or lay new routes by water. What are his words? What did you have to “spend centuries” to see a tanker passing through the NSR 365 days a year? What was the dream of the Russian pioneers of the 14-17 centuries?
      Something bourgeois is talking ...!

    - Well, since NOVATEK "got down to business"; then even the case of the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome ... - it can "make room" or in general ... - recede into the background ... - Russian Space today ... is almost the Russian Arctic today ... - where Russian billions (and even trillions) melt like Arctic ice and disappear like cosmic dust in the vast outer space ... - you can't find the ends ... -For a swindler of this level ... like NOVATEK ... - The Arctic ... is simple " not plowed field "...
