Rosnefteflot, a subsidiary of Rosneft, and SCF Management Services, a subsidiary of Sovcomflot, have entered into an agreement to provide engineering support services for the construction of three 114,000 dwt tankers at Zvezda Shipyard, says Rosneft.
The liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered Aframax tankers shall be used to export oil and petroleum products from Russian ports, including the Baltic facilities.
“Gas (LNG) powered tankers are the new generation vessels," it says.
“Their design capitalises on the operating experience of Sovcomflot, Rosnefteflot and other Russian carriers.
“The vessels meet the highest environmental standards, as well as new regulations that limit emissions of sulphur oxide, nitrogen and greenhouse gases."
According to Rosneft, each tanker is 250 meters long and 44 meters wide, with draft of 15 meters, and speed reaching up to 14.6 knots. The vessels will have the ICE-1B ice class notation.
The newbuildings will be due for delivery from Q3 2018 to Q2 2019.
