Acting Energy Minister Olha Buslavets confirmed the information that the American Louisiana Natural Gas Exports refused a cooperation project with Ukraine, which provided for long-term supplies of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the amount of about 5 billion cubic meters of gas per year, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

“There was a refusal, there was no additional communication after that,” she said at a press conference in Kyiv on Friday.
