Russia, USA agree about Arctic LNG

Authorities in Russia and the USA have agreed to jointly elaborate classification rules for tankers shipping LNG in Arctic waters.

The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping and the US Bureau of Shipping are to elaborate regulations for the shipping of the Liquified Natural Gas in the Arctic.

The agreement comes as the Shtokman Development Company is proceeding with the development plans for the huge Shtokman field in the Barents Sea.

Russia alone plans a massive development of LNG facilities along its northern coast. Among the Russian oil industry"s plans is a LNG plant in Teriberka on the Barents Sea coast, as well as a plant in the Yamal Peninsula.

According to journal Expert, Gazprom subsidiary Sevmorneftegaz has announced that a total of 25 new LNG tankers will be needed alone in connection with the Shtokman project.

Head of the Russian Ship Register, Mr. Vladimir Yevenko, says to the journal that the harsh climatic conditions in the North exposes the LNG tankers of complicated problems such as low temperatures and ice layers.

We made the strategic decision that it was in the best interest of industry to combine our shared experience and technical expertise to address the need for guidance with these carriers in the Arctic, especially at a time when gas transport from the Arctic regions of Russia will increase over the next few years, said Roger Basu, Director, ABS Corporate Research & Product Development, in a press release from the US Bureau of Shipping.

The principal elements in ice strengthening LNG carrier design are: strengthening of the hull; the interaction of the hull structure with the containment system; minimum propulsion power requirements and strength of the propeller, the press release adds.
