    Sovcomflot tankers transport one million tonnes of oil from Novy Port oil and gas condensate field

    Sovcomflot’s three unique Arctic shuttle tankers, of the Shturman Albanov series, have now transported one million tonnes of crude oil produced at the Novy Port oil and gas condensate field, from the Gulf of Ob (Kara Sea) to the port of Murmansk. The milestone millionth tonne cargo of oil was loaded on Shturman Albanov on 29 January 2017 at the Arctic Gate marine terminal located near Cape Kamenny (Gulf of Ob), the SCF Group said Monday in a press release.

    In total, SCF tankers have completed 33 voyages with Novy Port grade oil since last autumn. The first large cargo of oil was loaded on the lead ship of the series, Shturman Albanov, on 12 September 2016.

    Sovcomflot’s three Arctic shuttle tankers – Shturman Albanov, Shturman Malygin and Shturman Ovtsyn – are specially designed to carry crude oil from the Yamal Peninsula (Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District) to the port of Murmansk all year round. The vessels are registered under the Russian flag and have Saint Petersburg as their home port. Oil is shipped under a long-term contract with Gazprom Neft.

    Sovcomflot's Shturman Albanov-series vessel particulars
    The tankers of the Shturman Albanov series have unique specifications. The deadweight of each tanker is about 42,000 tonnes (Shturman Albanov - 41,454 tonnes, Shturman Malygin - 41,541 tonnes, and Shturman Ovtsyn – 41,551 tonnes). All three vessels have a length of 249 m and a breadth of 34 m. The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping (RS) assigned the vessels an ice class Arc7.

    Tanker Shturman Albanov joined the SCF fleet on 16 August 2016, with Shturman Malygin added on 7 October 2016 and Shturman Ovtsyn put into service on 8 December 2016. Proceeding to her operation area, Shturman Ovtsyn took part in a unique transit voyage along the Northern Sea Route within a convoy of ships under the escort of Atomflot’s nuclear-powered icebreaker 50 Let Pobedy. For the first time in the history of Arctic navigation, the ships sailed westward along the Northern Sea Route in late December 2016 – early January 2017.
