The shipping activities on the NSR in September of this year in terms of the voyages number remained at the same level as in 2020, but the number of vessels operating increased (see the chart on the map).
The peak of activity in September was on river-sea transportation. According to our calculations, 44 vessels operated in this direction, making a total of 106 voyages. Traditionally, these were mainly general cargo and oil products. However, there was also an unusual transportation this year in September. 12 bison were delivered to polar Yakutia along the Northern Sea Route, which entered the world of fauna of the Pleistocene Park. The animals were brought from Denmark, the route was divided into several stages, first via the countries of Europe, then via the territory of Russia – from Smolensk to Arkhangelsk. From August 14, the most difficult sea section of the route to the village of Cherskiy lasted. On September 9, the dry cargo ship with bison was met in Cherskiy. As representatives of the reserve noted, the Zelenyy Mys river port (the Kolyma river) made them advance and handled especially important cargo out of turn. news.myseldon.com/ru/news/index/258646650
Drilling works are ongoing. In September, the semi-submersible floating drilling rig Severnoe Siyanie arrived in the Kara Sea. Severnoe Siyanie continues researching hydrocarbon reserves at the Leningradskoe gas condensate field in the Kara Sea basin. Also in September, dredging works were carried out in the areas of Sever Bay, Salmanovskoe field, in Pevek. The active delivery of the necessary cargoes for the development of the Salmanovskoe field, the Kharasaveyskoe field and the Sever Bay terminal continued.
