Chinese yard Bomesc Offshore Engineering is ready to ship the modules it has completed for the Novatek-led Arctic LNG 2 project in Russia, but the shipping schedule remains uncertain due to the impact of Western sanctions imposed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.

Well-placed industry sources told Upstream that Bomesc has loaded two non-processing modules it has built for Train 2 of the $21.3 billion project onto the Cosco-owned vessel Xin Guang Hua.
