    You’re a tad behind the times there – The LNG tanker got through in December… with the assistance of a nuclear powered icebreaker.

    It should be noted that the Ob River isn’t the run-of-the-mill LNG tanker, either. It has a reinforced hull for this type of passage. Gazprom has a vested interest in doing whatever is necessary to head off exports of LNG from the US.
