    SCF Yenisey and SCF Pechora commence transportation of first oil from Novy Port field

    In August 2014, Sovcomflot’s product carriers SCF Yenisey and SCF Pechora start transportation of first oil from the Novy Port field in the Gulf of Ob (Yamal-Nenets autonomous region), press center of Sovcomflot says.

    At this moment, SCF Yenisey is being loaded while SCF Pechora is being prepared for cargo operations. The vessels have been time-chartered by Gazprom Neft OJSC.

    SCF Yenisey and SCF Pechora (some 47,000 DWT each) are the largest vessels transporting oil from this region of the Far North. The tankers are flying the flag of the Russian Federation and have the highest ice class - 1А.

    Part of the voyage will run along the Northern Sea Route.  Sovcomflot is planning to use the voyages of SCF Yenisey and SCF Pechora in the Gulf of Ob for studying of the fairway as part of preparation for long-term work on large-scale oil and gas projects in the Yamal Peninsula announced by Gazprom Neft. 

    The Gulf of Ob at the mouth of the Ob river is the largest bay in the Kara Sea bordering the Yamal peninsula in the west. Severe Arctic climate keeps it covered with ice from October till July.

    In summer navigation of 2012, SCF Neva (ice class – 1A) started transportation of oil from the Gulf of Ob under time-charter agreements with Lukoil from August 1.  

    Sovcomflot Group is Russia’s largest shipping company and one of the world’s leading shipping companies specializing in the maritime hydrocarbons transportation and supporting continental shelf exploration and oil & gas production. The SCF fleet includes 156 vessels with a combined deadweight of around 12 million tonnes. One third of them have a high ice class. The Group specialises in hydrocarbon transportation from regions with challenging ice conditions. Sovcomflot supports large-scale offshore energy projects in Russia and the rest of the world, including: Sakhalin-I, Sakhalin-II, Varandey, Prirazlomnoye, Tangguh, Escobar, and Peregrino.
    The company is registered in Saint-Petersburg and has representative offices in Moscow, Novorossiysk, Murmansk, Vladivostok, London, Limassol, Madrid, Singapore and Dubai.

    The Novy Port field is one of the largest oil and gas condensate deposits being developed in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area (YNAO). C1 and C2 reserves at the Novy Port deposit hold over 250 million tonnes of oil and condensate, as well as over 320 billion cubic metres of gas (including Paleozoic deposits). The development of infrastructure necessary for full-scale industrial development of the Novy Port is under construction today. A terminal with daily capacity of up to 40,000 tonnes of crude will be built at Cape Kamenny by the end of 2015. The deposit and the terminal will be linked by a 100-kilometer long pipeline.
