Ukraine Started Import of Liquefied Gas from Azerbaijan via Batumi

Ukraine has imported 740 tons of propane-butane mixture (LPG) from Azerbaijan in the beginning of the third decade of November, according to UPECO consulting company.

The company said that Ukraine hasn’t previously received liquefied gas from Azerbaijan.

“The importers are Ukrainian Nadezhda company and SOCAR Energy Ukraine (subsidiary of Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR), which contracted for 530 tons and 210 tons of LPG, respectively. Heydar Aliyev Baku Oil Refinery is the producer of LPG,” said the message from UPECO.

The LPG was imported to Ukraine via the railway from City Gas terminal which is located in Romania’s Galati Free Trade Zone, said UPECO. The propane-butane mixture was delivered to the terminal in Romania with a tanker from Batumi Sea Port.

The company said that the import of LPG from Azerbaijan to Ukraine is fragmentary, as the terminal in Galati receives liquefied gas from various sources, including Russia, Kazakhstan, as well as Black and Mediterranean Sea countries.
