KIEV, July 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Finance Ministry has suggested organizing a working group to analyze realistic projects to replace imported natural gas, which could apply for state support, the ministry’s press service says on Friday.
The finance ministry, jointly with other authorities, has worked on “possible variants to replace gas with other kinds of fuel and energy", the press service said. “Every suggested option may be developed if it suits any of Ukraine’s regions.”
The government has been considering eight variants of replacing imported natural gas: bio fuels, synthesis gas, higher production of own gas, coal-water slurry fuel, use of autonomous heating systems, construction of a re-gasification terminal, gas production in the chemical industry, as well as gas production in coal gasification.
“As none of the directions to use imported natural gas cannot be implemented in Ukraine without realistic projects, the Finance Ministry has suggested organizing a working group under the ministry of regional development,” the source said.
