A trio of three conventional ice-class LNG carriers are heading westbound through the Northern Sea Route following the channel of an ice-breaking LNG vessel moving ahead of them.

Eikland Energy data service iGIS/LNG said the 172,600-cbm Arc7 LNG carrier Eduard Toll (built 2017) is leading three less ice-class vessels — the 162,000-cbm Clean Vision (built 2016) along with the 161,800-cbm Clean Planet and the 161,881-cbm Clean Ocean (both built 2014).
