The largest growth among the ports of the Arctic is recorded in the Yamal port of Sabetta — the amount of cargo transshipment there 2.3 times increased, up to 11 million 390 thousand tonnes. The positive dynamics is explained with the growth of liquefied natural gas transshipment from enterprises of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
The cargo turnover of Russian ports of the Arctic basin in January — May of 2019 made 43 million 310 thousand tonnes, what exceeds the figure of the analogous period of 2018 by 23.9%. Such data were provided by the Association of the sea trade ports. The growth, as before, is stipulated with increase in domestic transportations, namely transportation of minerals extracted in the Arctic zone. Thus, since the beginning of the year liquid cargo transshipment increased by 32.8%, up to 31 million 10 thousand tonnes, and the amount of dry cargo transshipment increased by 5.9%, up to 12 million 300 thousand tonnes.
The ports of Kandalaksha and Dudinka demonstrate high growth rates — by 34.6% and 16.3%, respectively. The cargo turnover of the port of Varandey made 3 million 40 thousand tonnes, 11% higher than a year earlier. Since the beginning of the year the cargo turnover of the port of Murmansk increased by 5.9% to 26 million 160 thousand tonnes.
According to the May decrees of the President of Russia, by 2025 the cargo flow of the Northern Sea Route will increase tenfold up to 80 million tonnes. In general, it is planned that the Northern Sea Route will be loaded till 2030 with exportation of mineral raw materials extracted in the sea area. Such calculations are made on the basis of data on ten investment projects supposing exportation of extracted raw materials by sea, half of which is associated with development of hydrocarbon raw materials, and the rest will be provided with coal, ore and metals.
As it should be reminded, in total 339 million 600 thousand tonnes were transshipped in sea ports of Russia in January — May this year, what is 2.3% higher than in the analogous period of last year.
