GAC Russia to handle Yamal LNG tanker requirements

12 Feb 2018

The Russian arm of global ship agency firm GAC has entered into an agreement with Yamal LNG to manage its fleet of tankers.

The arrangement will see GAC Russia managing Yamal LNG's ice-breaker tankers at Sabetta port for the next three years. Under the agreement, GAC Russia will handle an estimated 400 port calls every year; 200 in Sabetta and an additional 200 globally.

GAC Russia will apply its expertise to every aspect of in-port activities at Sabetta, from permits to operate in Russian waters and sourcing boarding engineers and scientists for the trials, to route coordination with the Russian Coast Guard Service and advice on Arctic navigation.

“Our work with Yamal LNG is testament to the array of support GAC can provide in addition to standard services such as Customs formalities, crew transfers, provision of bunker fuels and delivery of ship spares, machine parts and supplies," says Tatyana Shorokhova, general manager of GAC Russia.

“We are privileged to be working so extensively with Yamal LNG on this historic project. Coupled with our ongoing expansion into the Russian Far East, this makes GAC Russia the only ship agent with a presence throughout the interconnected Arctic region and the Far East.

"With offices in Nakhodka and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, we cover 22 maritime ports in the region.”
