Gazprom Neft Ships Its 200th Oil Consignment

Gazprom Neft has completed its shipment of the 200th consignment of ARCO crude from its Prirazlomnaya offshore rig.

Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, all operations on the rig are being undertaken as standard, with all measures necessary being taken to protect employees from COVID-19. This landmark shipment was undertaken by the Mikhail Ulyanov tanker — several return trips to the Prirazlomnaya rig being necessary to despatch a consignment comprising 70,000 tonnes of oil. The vessel typically approaches one of various direct-loading facilities — or moves away from the platform, at a safe distance — depending on the prevailing wind direction, currents and movements of ice. A dynamic positioning system helps keep the vessel in place during transhipment, but the operation itself only starts once 30 essential safety criteria have been met.

Oil has been transported by vessels from the Sovcomflot group of companies since the rig was first commissioned — shuttle tankers the Mikhail Ulanov (which completed the first shipment of Arctic oil in 2014) and the Kirill Lavrov — both of which have since delivered more than 13 million tonnes of oil to the Port of Murmansk in the six years the Prirazlomnaya rig has been in operation.
