The Zvezda shipyard in Primorsky Krai will assemble five Arc7 gas carriers for the Arctic LNG-2 NOVATEK project. For this, the company signed a contract for the supply of components with the South Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industrial. The transaction amount is 1,5 billion US dollars.

As the Kommersant, Zvezda will have to complete the vessels created in Korea and provide technologically complex installation of a cryogenic membrane. There is no experience in the construction of gas carriers in Russia, therefore, the coastal plant chose as its technological partner the South Korean shipyard, one of the largest in the world.

Arrangements were reached during the WEF-2019. Samsung will transfer to Zvezda the technical specification and rights to the project documentation. Government of the Russian Federation promises to compensate coastal shipyard difference in the cost of building gas carriers compared to South Korea within 20%. But according to the publication, the project has not yet been agreed with the Ministry of Finance.
