A ship carrying liquefied natural gas destined for Ukraine has arrived at the Świnoujście terminal in Poland.
"U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) is coming to Ukraine! Another step in helping Ukraine achieve energy independence, a ship carrying the LNG destined for Ukraine arrived yesterday at the Świnoujście, Poland LNG landing terminal in the Baltic Sea," the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine tweeted Wednesday, November 20.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Polish PGNiG and Energy Resources of Ukraine had signed an agreement on delivering U.S. LNG to Ukraine via Poland.
PGNiG buys LNG from the U.S. to then transfer it to the Ukrainian company once the regasification process is complete.
In 2018, Ukraine imported 10.39 billion cubic meters of gas totaling $3.12 billion.
In late November 2015, Ukraine terminated gas purchases from Russian Gazprom.
