Finnish Shipwrights Studying Yamal Gas Fields
18.03.2010 — News
Managers of Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg Ltd are very interested in projects of Aker Arctic, a Finnish research centre. Tankers designed by the company in the future may be used for Parusovaya group of fields near the operating infrastructure of Yamburg oil and gas condensate field.
Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg Ltd is a Gazprom subsidiary which accounts for more than 40% of the holding's production volumes. Total reserves of the Parusovaya group exceed 400 billion cubic metres of natural gas.
The press service of Gazprom Dobycha Yamburg informed RusBusinessNews that no particular details were discussed during the visit of Aker Arctic representatives to Yamal. Only Gazprom management can make a decision regarding a deal of this kind.
The Finnish company is successfully cooperating with the Russian gas company: in February 2010 the arctic tanker Mikhail Ulyanov designed by Aker Arctic and built at the Admiralty wharfs has been launched; Gazprom Neft Shelf is the vessel's freighter. The tanker with 70 thousand tons displacement was designed with the use of Aker Arctic patented DAS (Double Acting Ship) technology, where the ship operates with the stern first when operating in ice, breaking ice like an icebreaker.
