Shtokman Development AG representatives Spoke At Annual Conference “Logistics in Arctic” in Murmansk

On April 12, 2012 the representatives of Shtokman Development AG participated in II International Conference “Logistics in Arctic”, arranged by Association of Suppliers for Oil & Gas Industry “Murmanshelf”. The conference is held with the support of the Murmansk Regional Government and the Murmansk Regional Duma and traditionally draws attention of managers and specialists from Russian and foreign companies, specialized on transport logistics in the course of Arctic shelf projects’ implementation.

During the conference SDAG representative Alexey Fadeev spoke about logistics strategy for implementation of Shtokman Gas-Condensate Field Development, Phase I. In his presentation Alexey stated that today the main objective is the selection of optimal scheme for delivery of cargo and transportation of personnel to the work site. Several routes are under consideration; moreover the particular attention during logistics operations will be given to labor and industrial safety. The logistics strategy for SGCF development also assumes maximum use of the Murmansk Region capabilities in transportation, thus imposing special requirements to regional infrastructure. In this respect the main priorities are to improve riding qualities and further reconstruct Murmansk-Teriberka Road, enhance cellular communication quality along that route, as well as elaborate optimal customs clearance scheme.
