NOVATEK eyes arranging LNG bunkering in Sabetta
PAO NOVATEK is considering a possibility of arranging LNG bunkering in Sabetta port (Yamal), Maksim Minin, Head of Marine Port Facilities Engineering Division, Engineering and Investments Department, NOVATEK, said at the 2nd Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging Congress organized by IAA PortNews.
“We are looking into it”, said NOVATEK representative when answering the question of IAA PortNews.
Maksim Minin also said that arranging of LNG bunkering is also “possible in principle” in transshipment points of the Murmansk Region and Kamchatka. According to him, there is a plan to build such points though they have not been foreseen initially.
However, that is only possible if there is a demand and if all the stakeholders join their efforts, said Maksim Minin.
