NOVATEK and Rosatomflot agreed to jointly develop and build a fleet of icebreakers using liquefied gas as fuel. The first Deputy Chairman of the Board of NovoTEK Lev Feodosyev said that the companies signed an agreement of intent.

"The agreement is aimed at creating a joint venture, the task of which will be the development of the icebreaker fleet for LNG for use in our projects. Based on the results of this Memorandum, we will have to create appropriate working groups and make a decision by the end of the year. We will also have to discuss forms of cooperation and financing. We will evaluate up to four icebreakers, " said Mr. Feodosyev during his speech at the Eastern economic forum (quote on Interfax).

He noted that at the beginning of the Yamal LNG project, the partners expected the economy based on the work of five months a year to the East along the Northern sea route and seven months to the West, but thanks to effective management and ice management, the supply window to the East can be increased.
