Russia’s Novatek, the operator and developer of two giant Arctic LNG export projects, may significantly increase output at its medium-scale liquefied natural gas export plant in Russia’s Baltic Sea port of Vysotsk.

To remind, Novatek launched full-scale production at the Cryogas-Vysotsk project, jointly owned with Gazprombank, in April this year.

 

The project’s initial design capacity is 660,000 tons of LNG per year, and its infrastructure includes a 42,000 cubic meters LNG storage tank and an offloading berth designed to handle LNG carriers with a capacity of up to 30,000 cubic meters.

 

In the first month of operations, Novatek sold about 71,000 tons or about 32 shipments of LNG of which 16 were delivered by trucks and 16 were delivered to vessels, according to Gyetvay.

Moreover, oil prices were supported by Saudi Arabia claims that OPEC is close to agreeing a further extension of supply cuts. As a result, Brent crude settled 2.5% up at 63.29$ a barrel, while WTI futures climbed by 2.7% to 53.99$ a barrel.
