    Zvezda Shipyard has signed a contract for the first Arctic LNG tanker with Sovcomflot

    According to the newspaper "Kommersant" in the article by Anastasia Vedeneyeva, "The Star" goes on the ice. The shipyard contracted the Arctic LNG tanker with Sovcomflot, Sovcomflot and Zvezda shipyard signed a contract to build a pilot gas carrier Arc7 for the export of liquefied gas from the Arctic LNG project NOVATEK. The vessel must be commissioned in 2022 and must undergo ice tests no later than April 2023. NOVATEK will charter a gas carrier for 25 years. Experts believe that in close cooperation between Zvezda and Koreans, as well as the presence of 15 Yamal LNG gas carriers Arc7 of the Yamal LNG project, the risks for the company due to the potential delay in delivery of the tanker are minimal.

    Draft recycling program for old ships


    As Kommersant newspaper reports in Anastasia Vedeneyeva’s article “They're sharpening a knife on old tankers. They propose to solve industry problems with their recycling,” Russian shipping companies are discussing a program to dispose of the old fleet for domestic traffic, by analogy with the use of railway cars introduced in 2016 . This measure was proposed by the head of AEON corporation Roman Trotsenko. The reason is a sharp drop in freight rates, which is why companies that have invested in the construction of new ships, primarily oil tankers, suffer losses. The owners of the old ships warn that such an approach will not solve the problem - cargoes with an increase in freight rates will simply go to the railway.

    The shipping community is discussing the possibility of limiting the service life of oil tankers. Such a measure on April 12 was the subject of discussion at the subcommittee on sea and river transport of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs. Its chairman, head of AEON corporation, Roman Trotsenko, at the beginning of the meeting, recalled that the industry over the past three years has been in a serious crisis. Discounts of Russian Railways for transportation of petroleum products in the directions duplicating river routes, the rising cost of fuel and the devaluation of the ruble have led to an “unprecedented situation” in the reduction of freight rates by three times.

    A similar situation was in the rolling stock market, when rental rates for gondola cars fell four times. “The railway behaved responsibly, it was decided to reduce the old rolling stock. It was uneven across the industry, painful for some players. But, having made an awkward decision, they showed themselves as a viable and active institution, eventually stabilizing the industry, ”noted Roman Trotsenko. He stressed that while there is no consolidated solution. The common position should be formalized by April 22 at the RSPP commission on transport and transport infrastructure. The easy decision is usually wrong, the businessman summed up.

    The head of the Moscow River Shipping Company (part of AEON), Bakhtier Kasimov, proposed a ban on the operation of the tanker fleet over 40 years old, including those under a foreign flag (see chart). He added that such restrictions apply in Israel and the UAE. The head of the Russian Chamber of Shipping, Alexei Klyavin, recalled that restrictions on the operation of foreign companies would require the adoption of a law. Instead, he proposed lowering for the "new high-tech vessels" port charges and other preferences that would allow competing in the market.

    First Deputy General Director of Volgotrans Alexey Palgov suggested not to concentrate only on the oil fleet, but to take into account the dry cargo, passenger, and auxiliary services. He acknowledged that "the age fleet is not dangerous, it meets all the requirements." But, Mr. Palgov believes, it is necessary to consider the issue from the point of view of industry development. “We were seeking subsidies for the development of new shipbuilding, at the time of launch it stopped, there are no new orders. Hydraulic structures for whom we are building? ”He says. In his opinion, it is necessary to talk about the operational period for each type of fleet - as soon as the ship has completed it, it should leave.

    Advisor to the Director General of Rosnefteflot, Andrei Guzenko, spoke out against a severe limitation of the vessel’s service life. It would be more correct to make equivalent opportunities for operating the new and old fleets through taxes, insurance, he said. Rosneft is the main shipper for oil cargo in the European part of the Russian Federation; the company is also actively seeking discounts from Russian Railways, which representatives of the shipping industry consider to be one of the main reasons for the fall in freight rates. At current rates only the old fleet can work profitably.

    The representative of “Bashvolgotanker” spoke out most strongly against sending the old fleet for scrapping. “We considered the export of cargo from inland waterways to coastal areas, without going long-distance sailing. In fact, you have built a "sea-river" ships, with this class you can go to the seas and oceans, look for a cargo base in other regions. Now it turns out that big beautiful modern vessels climbed into our cake, ”said the first deputy managing director of the company, Vyacheslav Stepanov. Bashvolgotanker insists on developing measures to encourage the efficient operation of the new fleet, and not restrict the work of the old one. The main problem is to reduce the cargo base, and the restriction for the age fleet will not solve it, Mr. Stepanov concluded. As measures of support at the meeting, an increase in the ship's utilization grant, a zeroing of the excise tax on diesel fuel or an increase in the payment of the reverse excise tax, etc. were considered.

    If the age of fleet operation is limited, the business of some companies will be destroyed, and in some segments Russia will remain without a fleet at all, says the head of Infoline-Analitika Mikhail Burmistrov. The measure may be introduced pointwise - for example, in the segment of oil and dry cargo transportation. But in connection with the retirement of the fleet, freight rates may increase by 10–15%, which may be critical for the shipper, then the volumes will simply go to the railway. Without regulatory measures restricting the use of discounts within the tariff corridor of Russian Railways, such a measure is unlikely to be effective, and restrictions for Russian Railways are fraught with a decrease in the competitiveness of rail transport, concludes Mikhail Burmistrov.

    That is interesting... so Yakutia is a Russian federation republic in the far east that has a coastline to its north... the model shown for this new shipyard seems to be built on a major river and the major river in Yakutia is the Lena river... but as it approaches the coast to the north it splits into a huge number of rivers...

    If you look at the map page:

    https://yandex.com/maps/?ll=134.182153%2C68.828961&mode=search&sll=126.752030%2C71.943228&sspn=8.745117%2C2.482314&text=Yakutia&z=4

    And zoom in to the area where the Lena river meets the coast you can see thousands of branches for this river and small lakes... literally...

    This is not the same thing as the Zvezda shipyard programme.

    Construction of fishing trawlers at the factory "Yantar" is delayed due to sanctions


    According to the web resource Korabel.ru, US sanctions against United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) prevent the creation of ships in domestic shipyards. Problems with fishing vessels for the Far East have arisen at PJSC Baltic Shipbuilding Plant Yantar in Kaliningrad in connection with US sanctions, a plant representative told Interfax.

    Trawlers "Leninets", "Commander", "Drummer" are built for Kamchatka fishermen. The customer is the "Lenin Fishing Farm". Three ships are 95%, 80% and 70% ready, respectively.

    The Norwegian shipyard partners waived certain obligations due to sanctions. In this regard, during the construction of problems.

    "They did not separate military and civil shipbuilding, which somewhat hinders the construction of ships, because instead of full-fledged cooperation, you have to look for alternative solutions to a number of problems," a company representative told about partners from Norway.

    The dry dock is the object of the second stage of construction of the SSC "Star". Initially, a unique hydraulic structure of 485x114x15 size was planned to be commissioned in 2023, but construction work is carried out ahead of schedule. The commissioning of the dry dock is scheduled for 2020.
     a 485  m long drydock... I wonder what kind of ships could be built there.. 😉

    Russia allocates $800M for LNG tankers


    The Russian government has allocated nearly 50 billion Russian rubles ($800 million) to construct liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers for the Arctic LNG 2 project, expected to start in 2023, Kallanish Energy understands.

    Denis Manturov, Russia’s Industry and Trade minister, told journalists about government support for the Zvezda Shipbuilding Complex, a Rosneft-led shipyard that, together with Russia’s shipping company Sovkomflot PJSC, will construct the vessels, Caspian News reports.

    Growing its LNG potential

    “I can only say that approximately the total amount of subsidies, taking into account 15 gas carriers, will be about 50 billion rubles, but the final calculation has not yet been made,” Russian news agency RIA Novosti quoted Manturov as saying Tuesday.

    Russia intends to grow its LNG potential amid the escalating pressure coming from Washington, D.C. via sanctions. In 2017, the Trump Administration released the Countering American Adversaries Through Sanctions Act in order to push for Europe to abandon multi-billion energy projects with Russia, including the Nord Stream-2 pipeline.

    The Arctic LNG 2 project is the second LNG export building project by Novatek, one of Russia’s largest natural gas producers.

    Located on the Gydan Peninsula in northwestern Siberia, the Arctic LNG 2 plant is being designed to produce an estimated 6.6 million tons of LNG annually for each of its three lines, or 19.8 million tons overall.

    Novatek controls project

    Novatek controls a 90% stake in the project, while the French oil and gas company Total holds a 10% share. However, Novatek’s ownership stake will shrink to 60% when deals struck with Chinese and Japanese partners come into force.

    At the G-20 summit held in Osaka, Japan last month, the Japanese energy consortium of Mitsui & Co. and Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corp. acquired a 10% share each in Novatek’s Arctic LNG 2 liquefied natural gas project.

    Cnpc, Cnooc join project

    Last month, Novatek also signed an agreement with two Chinese companies, China National Petroleum Corp. (Cnpc) and China National Offshore Oil Corp. (Cnooc), under which the two will also get a 10% stake.

    “We are very glad that Cnooc has joined our Arctic LNG 2 project as our new partner, since China represents one of the key consuming markets for our LNG sales,” Russian television network RT quoted Leonid Mikhelson, Novatek’s chairman, as saying last month on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

    Mikhelson also emphasized Novatek plans to sell roughly 80% of its production from the Arctic LNG 2 project to customers in the Asia-Pacific region, while the remaining 20% will be exported to Europe.

    Russia, holding the world’s largest natural gas reserves, currently possesses two LNG plants, including the Gazprom-led Sakhalin LNG plant situated on Sakhalin Island, which has an annual capacity of 9.6 million tons of LNG; and the three-train Yamal LNG plant, which has proven reserves of 683 billion cubic meters of gas.

    Apparently there are plans for modernisation also of other smaller plants in the far east

    https://rg.ru/2019/07/18/reg-dfo/dalnevostochnye-verfi-sdelali-stavki-na-grazhdanskie-suda.html

    In order to receive orders for modern ships, Blagoveshchensky, Khabarovsk and Amur shipyards need modernization. It is necessary to upgrade the ship launch and dock facilities so that ships of greater tonnage can leave the stocks to the test site.

    They are all shipyards in the far east.

    Blagovechenski shipyard can now build ships up to 75m long, 14m wide and with a displacement up to 1500m.

    Khabarovsk Shipbuilding Plant can currently build up to 15 ships simultaneously with a displacement of 250 to 1,500 tons and a delivery of 2 to 5 units per year. After completing the upgrade of the ship launch devices their capacity will increase to 2500 tons.

    Amur shipyard should be able to build ship of the size of a large frigate or a "normal" destroyer (around 8000tons max possible displacement), but did not build recently large ships.


    Btw today amur shipyard launched a ferry ship for the
    connection to Sakhalin, probably near the largest possible width for its facilities (the ferry is 131 m long, 20.3 m wide, and with a draft of 6.6 m)

    Floating dock for nuclear icebreakers to be built in Crimea


    Atomflot, the service base for Russia’s civilian nuclear-powered icebreakers in Murmansk is about to contract the Kerch based «Zaliv» shipyard on Crimea to build a giant floating dock, Kommersant reports.

    The dock is highly needed as the icebreaker fleet will be expanded with five new larger LK-60a icebreakers with the first to be delivered next summer.

    Today, Atomflot has one floating dock at the base, but that one is too small for today’s Arktika-class icebreakers so docking of the ships take place in a rented dock in the central harbor of Murmansk.

    The new floating dock has a price-tag of about 8,5 billion rubles (€119 million).

    In October last year sank the largest floating dock on the Kola Peninsula, the 80,000 tons dock at shipyard No. 82 in Roslyakovo in the Kola bay. This dock, originally bought from Sweden in the 1980s, will not be raised.
