Specifically, during the first eleven months of 2019, the plant managed to exceed its annual nameplate production capacity due to the fact that all three Yamal's LNG trains were operating, with the third one launching a year earlier than planned, in 2018.

The LNG plant reached the 25 million tons of LNG since the beginning of Train 1 in December 2017; From that time, Yamal has dispatched more than 340 cargos.

Recently, Novatek reported that in 2019's Q3 15 LNG cargos from the company’s Yamal LNG project were shipped eastbound to the Asian Pacific markets directly through the Northern Sea Route, with the company expecting a more than four times increase in the volumes of LNG delivered eastbound to the Asian Pacific markets via the NSR for 2019, compared to last year.
