The largest shipping firm in Russia, Sovcomflot, has sold off at least 20 tankers to avoid defaults and pay off creditors. About it on May 23, reports the Financial Times.
On 31 May 2020 at 06:00 Moscow time Christophe de Margerie, an icebreaking LNG carrier owned and operated by SCF Group, successfully completed her passage across the NSR, bound for China with a cargo of LNG for the Yamal LNG project.
In March 2009, SCF’s LNG carrier Grand Aniva loaded the first shipment of Russian LNG produced at the Sakhalin-2 plant. As LNG production at Sakhalin-2 commenced, Russia became a full-fledged member of the club of LNG exporting nations.
