Sea Fleet of Russia

Russia Post released a set of 2 stamp on Sea Fleet of Russia depicting the “Prirazlomnaya” platform in the ice and the “Mikhail Ulyanov” tanker. on 23rd September 2015.

Prirazlomnoe is the first and only field on the Russian Arctic shelf where oil production is carried out. This is the only project in the world, where production in the Arctic is performed with a stationary platform.

“Mikhail Ulyanov” Arctic Shuttle Tanker uses a double-action principle in its operation –its bow and stern are of an icebreaking form, which enables the ship to move through the ice. In winter, the ship can operate without being accompanied by an icebreaker while moving through ice up to 1.2 m thick.
