Video: China’s Wison delivers giant Arctic LNG 2 modules

China’s Wison Offshore and Marine has released a video showing the construction and delivery of four giant Arctic 2 LNG modules.

The firm said on August 26 that two of these modules had left its Zhoushan yard towards Russia.

Novatek received these Arctic LNG 2 modules last month at its yard in Murmansk. The project’s EPC contractor, a joint venture of Technip Energies, Saipem and Nipigas, delivered them from Zhoushan port to the Murmansk LNG construction center.

In addition, two more modules left Wison’s Zhoushan facility on September 11, the firm said in the new video update below.

The pipe-rack modules weighing about nine thousand tons each would be further skidded onto the gravity base structure (GBS) platform of the first Arctic LNG 2 train.

Wison said it is also working on modules for the second and the third GBS.

The Arctic LNG 2 project located on the Gydan peninsula includes the construction of three LNG trains with a capacity of 6.6 mtpa, each.

Novatek is the LNG project’s operator with a 60 percent stake, France’s TotalEnergies owns 10 percent while CNPC and CNOOC of China have 10 percent, each.

Japan Arctic LNG, a consortium of Mitsui & Co and Jogmec, owns a 10 percent stake in the project as well.

The partners plan to launch the first LNG train in 2023, with trains 2 and 3 to follow in 2024 and 2025, respectively.
