GTSOU creates a new route for LNG supplies

The Ukrainian gas transmission system operator is working on the creation of a route for the delivery of liquefied natural gas from Croatia through the territory of Hungary.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi and Prime Minister of the Republic of Croatia Andrej Plenković discussed energy security and diversification of energy supplies, in particular, liquefied gas, the press service of the GTSOU reports.

“Croatia is one of the priority partners of Ukraine in terms of diversifying sources of natural gas supplies. On January 1, 2021, on the island of Krk in Croatia a floating LNG terminal was launched with a throughput capacity of 2.6 billion cubic meters per year, which opens access to the global LNG market,” the message says.

The GTS Operator noted that the unification of natural gas markets would also provide the possibility of storing Croatian gas in Ukrainian UGS facilities.

As reported, in November Ukraine reduced gas imports from the EU by 92%.
