Russia was now pitching itself as an important transporter of European gas to Asia, reports Sputnik quoting Danila Bochkarev, a senior fellow at the EastWest Institute in Brussels.
The Russian supertanker Christophe de Margerie is en route to South Korea, sailing the Northern Sea Route with a load of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Norway.
The shipment is a major step for Russia’s Sovcomflot to enter the global gas transportation market said the report. The Northern Sea Route cuts the travel time from Europe to Asia by a hefty 40 percent and the Christophe de Margerie will cover this distance in just 15 days. https://www.marinelink.co...
