ASHGABAT, December 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russia-built oil tanker Kenar - translated as Shore - was registered in the east Caspian Sea port of Turkmenbashi on Friday.
This is the sixth vessel ordered by the oil-producing Turkmenistan republic's maritime and river transportation service from the Russian Nizhny Novgorod shipyard of Krasnoye Sormovo over the last five years.
Kenar's 7,100-tonne capacity reflects that of the vessels preceeding it and it will carry crude oil and petroleum products, the maritime service told Itar-Tass.
The 140-metre vessel has a deadweight of around 10,000 tonnes and is fitted with 12 isolated compartments to carry different fuel types in one passage.
Krasnoye Sormovo has built five similar oil tankers since 2009. Sumbar, Jeyhun and Etrek are named after Turkmenistan rivers; Hazar is the Turkmen name of the Caspian Sea; and Alaja translates as Talisman.
Under the state shipbuilding development programme, Turkmenistan will order one tanker a year until 2016. In 2012, the country produced 11 million tonnes of oil.
