Arctic Aurora Tanker Moored Off Hammerfest in Norway, Data Shows

Aug. 22 (Bloomberg) -- The liquefied natural gas tanker Arctic Aurora is docked off Statoil ASA’s Hammerfest LNG terminal in northern Norway, ship-tracking data show.

The vessel, with a capacity of about 155,000 cubic meters, arrived in Norway Aug. 20 without cargo. It used the Northern Sea Route after completing its trials in South Korea, according to ship transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg.

The route reduces the sailing time between Europe and Asia, and can be used by ships from July to November, when there is less ice. The Ob River was the first LNG vessel to sail the passage in October 2012.
