Winter shipment of oil of Novy Port brand from «Gazprom Neft» from Novoportovskoye field (Yamal) will take place for the first time.
The precious cargo will go to Europe by sea, as it is informed on the portal nation-news.ru. It is specified that oil of Novy Port category surpasses Brent because of low content of sulfur – about 0.1 percent.
Earlier oil of light category, to which Novy Port is referred, was transported to the railroad station Payuta on winter roads. The opportunity to transport by sea was confirmed for the first time in 2011. Test piloting of the nuclear-powered icebreaker from the port of Sabetta to Mys Kamenniy was conducted before. Near there is one of the largest fields of Yamal – Novoportovskoye.
It is expected that in winter this year several tankers with oil will go from this field. Icebreakers of the company «Atomflot» will pilot the tankers of the first consignment on the Northern Sea Route. The first winter shipment of oil will take place at favorable weather conditions.
