For many years Sovcomflot has been consistently implementing increasingly complex transport projects in the Arctic, working in partnership with Atomflot, Russian oil and gas companies, and research institutions.
Year-round navigation in the Eastern part of the Russian Arctic will result in more efficient use of the Northern Sea Route for the Russian economy.
Sovcomflot’s vessels are an important constituent element of large long-term oil and gas pro-jects, many of which are implemented in challenging high-latitude climate and ice conditions.
SCF Group is involved in servicing oil and gas projects in Russia and beyond, including: Yamal LNG; Arctic LNG 2; Sakhalin-1; Sakhalin-2; Varandey; Prirazlomnoye; Novy Port and Tangguh (Indonesia).
In 2020, Sovcomflot Group’s shipbuilding programme included 28 vessels of five different types, including those intended for the Sakhalin-1 and Arctic LNG 2 projects.
Two new vessels with a total deadweight of 186,000 tonnes — fifth-generation Atlanticmax carriers intended for transportation of liquefied natural gas — were added to the SCF fleet in 2020.
