MOSCOW – Lukoil subsidiary LUKOIL-Nizhnevolzhskneft has put into service three ice-class vessels supplied by Bumi Armada.

Bumi Uray, Bumi Pokachi, and Bumi Naryan-Mar were all constructed for use on the Vladimir Filanovsky field in the Russian sector of the Caspian Sea.

Bumi Naryan-Mar is a standby/rescue vessel equipped with oil spill response equipment and firefighting system, which can take up to 125 people on board during rescue operations.

The supply vessels Bumi Uray and Bumi Pokachi will deliver cargo and personnel and remove industrial and household waste from the field’s platforms as part of Lukoil’s commitment to zero discharge.

All the vessels are designed to facilitate passage through the Volga-Caspian canal. Their ice-class makes them suitable for year-round operation.
