KIEV, September 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine has embarked on negotiations with France on liquefied natural gas supplies, a spokeswoman for the Ukrainian state agency for investments and national project management said on Tuesday.
According to Oksana Kononko, a delegation from the agency led by its head Vladislav Kaskiv, which currently on a working visit to France (from September 5 through 7), has already had a round of consultations with representatives from the company Elengy, a subsidiary of GDF SUEZ, dedicated to cooperation in the construction of a liquefied gas terminal on the Ukrainian Black Sea coast. The sides have agreed to hold further consultations, in a broader format, to discuss routes to transport gas to the would-be terminal.
Apart from that, Kaskiv met with representatives from the French building company Bouygues to discuss joint infrastructure projects that will be implemented on a concession. The Ukrainian delegation also had talks at Alstom on the use of advanced technologies in the areas of power saving and transport.
“It is expected that after these negotiation French companies will take an active part in tenders related to the implementation of national projects in Ukraine,” Kononko said.
In 2010, Ukraine imported 181,440 tons of liquefied gas, or by 83 percent more than in 2009.
