Gas tanker the "Ob River" took the cargo aboard at Melkøya, Finnmark County, on 7 November. The ship is now lying outside one of Japan’s major LNG terminals in Japan waiting to unload 134,738 cubic metres of liquefied natural gas.
A subsidiary of giant Russian company Gazprom owns the cargo.
“The journey went according to plan,” says Tony Lauritzen in Greek shipping company Dynagen. He adds that Dynagen had prepared for the trans-Arctic Ocean voyage for more than a year.
“The ship first did a test run without cargo on board along the same route, but in the opposite direction from Japan over the Arctic Ocean,” he says by phone from Athens.
Mr Lauritzen also explains that two Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers accompanied the whole trip along the Northern Sea Route.
He estimates the sailing season in the north lasts from the very end of July to the first half of November.
