Rosnefteflot, part of Russia’s petroleum company Rosneft, has signed a contract with compatriot Zvezda shipyard for the construction of a 69,000 dwt shuttle tanker.

The contract, inked during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum held from May 24 to 26, 2018, includes an option to build a second similar vessel.

At the same time, a 20-year charter agreement was signed between Rosneft and Rosnefteflot.

The tanker will feature Arc6 ice class and will be used for export of oil and petroleum products from Trebsa and Titova fields, according to Rosneft.

Arc6 tankers are designed for operations where ice thickness is up to 1.5 meters and ambient temperature is down to -45 degrees.

With a length of 257 meters, a width of 34 meters and a speed of 15.5 knots, the vessel will be built under the supervision of the Russian Maritime Register and will be operated under the flag of the Russian Federation.

Back in September 2017, Rosneft signed with Zvezda an agreement of intent related to the construction of shuttle tankers of the ice class Arc6-Arc7. The total order placed with Zvezda includes 26 vessels. Out of these, twelve tankers of ice class Arc6-Arc7 have been ordered, as informed by Rosneft.
