SIMFEROPOL, May 15 /ITAR-TASS/. Crimean enterprise Chernomorneftegaz is planning to start construction of a gas-engine fuel plant in the peninsula in 2015, Director General Andrei Ilyin said at a news conference at the CrimeaInform news agency on Thursday.
About two or three years ago Chernomorneftegaz considered the construction of the LPG plant but the company launched this project only after Crimea had rejoined Russia. The project has emerged as a very timely one in the context of a Russian state programme.
“There is a state programme on equipping transport with engines working on liquefied gas fuel in order to decrease environmental pollution,” Ilyin said.
Earlier, Chernomorneftegaz functions were confined to exploration of gas deposits as well as its production, storage and transportation.
Sanctions imposed by the European Union on Chernomorneftegaz would not disrupt operations of the enterprise in any way, Ilyin said specifying that the company had no assets or accounts abroad and did not work outside Crimea.
“We supply natural gas to the domestic market,” he said. “So there are no reasons for trouble and I do not understand how these sanctions could be applied to us.”
On May 12, the European Union extended its sanctions list for Russia, blacklisting Chernomorneftegaz among others.
