TABLE-Arc7 class Arctic vessels head for Yamal LNG facility

    LONDON, Dec 4 (Reuters) - A new ice-breaking liquefied
natural gas (LNG) tanker of the Arc7 class, the Boris Davydov,
has left a South Korean shipyard and set course for Sabetta, the
Arctic Russian port of Novatek's Yamal facility,
according to Refinitiv shipping data.
    Georgiy Brusilov, another newbuild Arc7 tanker which left
the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering shipyard a month
ago, has been stationary at the mouth of Obskaya Gulf just north
of Sabetta for a week.
    Yamal needs the ice-breaker tankers to ship LNG out of the
Arctic waters especially during the winter months so the new
vessels will enable the facility to raise output by increasing
the shipping capacity.
    Refinitiv data shows the Georgiy Brusilov should enter
Sabetta on Dec. 6 while Boris Davydov should arrive on Dec. 24,
although these date can change.
