LSEG: Gazprom using FSRU Marshal Vasilevskiy as LNG tanker

MOSCOW (Reuters)Russia's Gazprom is using a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) as a tanker to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its Portovaya LNG plant in the Baltic Sea, London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) data shows.

The FSRU Marshal Vasilevskiy is normally used to supply the Kaliningrad region of Russia and ensure its gas security in case of disruption to pipeline supplies from neighboring countries.

Its use as an export vessel suggests there is a shortage of ice-class tankers available to ship LNG.

According to LSEG data, the Marshal Vasilevskiy loaded LNG from Portovaya LNG on May 9.
