Yamal LNG reached the millionth ton shipped on the 14th cargo loaded and dispatched at the Sabetta seaport.

In late February a 72-hour performance test was conducted to confirm the design parameters of Phase 1 at the Yamal LNG plant. Average production rate exceeded the plant’s design capacity by 9%, demonstrating a higher efficiency of liquefying natural gas in the colder, arctic climatic environment.
