The Arc7 ice-class tanker Christophe de Margerie has already made its way from the port of Sabetta to the Bering Strait, and the ice-class tanker Nikolai Yevgenov is still on the same route. Both tankers passed through the Northeast Passage in an average ice situation 2 months later than navigation on this of the Northeast Passage section usually ends. The Christophe de Margerie tanker took about 11 days to complete the entire route, which is 40% faster than the passage through the Suez Canal.
