KIEV, June 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine is considering importing liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Croatia under the Adriatic Gas Corridor project, the Ukrainian gas transportation company Ukrtransgaz said on Wednesday, June 25.
Gas will be supplied from an LNG terminal to be built by Croatia on the island of Krk in the Adriatic (Adria LNG project).
The gas corridor will consolidate the gas transportation systems of Croatia, Hungary and Ukraine and increase the amount of natural gas supplied to Ukraine from other sources. Ukraine’s underground gas storage facilities near its western border will allow the country to build up gas reserves for both the project participants and Western and Central European countries.
Ukraine is also exploring the possibility of joining the project to build the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) which will transport 10 billion cubic meters of Azerbaijani gas across Turkey to Europe. Since its capacity can be doubled, Ukraine would be interested to use the pipeline for additional gas supplies for its needs.
