Ukraine refused to become a hub for American LNG


The American gas company Louisiana Natural Gas Exports will not be able to create a hub in Ukraine for the trade and storage of liquefied gas from the United States. Such a hub was opposed by the Ukrainian concern Naftogaz - it does not need competition in the domestic market of the country. Thus, the project may become unprofitable.


Louisiana Natural Gas Exports is still a little-known company on the gas market that does not have its own gas fuel supply chain. They wanted to create such a chain with the consent of state structures in Kiev. However, the Ukrainian national company Naftogaz is not profitable from the plan to create a hub for American liquid fuel - if it is implemented, the pipeline itself will work for the United States.

On the one hand, Naftogaz exercises control over underground gas storage facilities with the help of Ukrtransgaz, and if an LNG hub is created, the Ukrainian side will have to make big concessions on the price of gas storage. In addition, in the context of the withdrawal of the fuel delivery system from Naftogaz of Ukraine, the company will turn into a trader company for the sale of gas. In such conditions, the national company does not need competitors who need benefits in the implementation of joint projects.

The head of Naftogaz Ukrainy, Andriy Kobolev, emphasized that the economic risks of implementing such plans.

    - And what is the company-trader for the sale of gas ... is a quite suitable and appropriate position-function for Naftogaz of Ukraine ... - Or he is going to live on payments for penalties from Gazprom ... - it will not work ... - then this "Naftogaz" will also bite their elbows when the Americans themselves create a new gas policeman in Ukraine to meet their gas needs ... - some "Ukrainian-LNG-Gas" ... - Hahah ...

      Are you sho? Create? In Ukraine? Americans?
      No, just wring it out. This LNG project, most likely, provided for the transfer (free of charge) of UGS facilities into American hands.

      Naftogaz lives not on fines from Gazprom, but on the reverse of Russian gas. I have no doubt that Gazprom did not lose money there either. payments, in the end, go through it.
  2. No, it's good in the Habs! We need to build a hub in Evpatoria - a truly Ukrainian city!

    Well, how much can you carry and listen to this nonsense?
    How will the "American" LNG get to Ukraine? Well, okay, Americans, as they know geography, we have heard from Psaki. And I'm not even talking about the minimum knowledge in current relations between states. But the Ukrainians, they asked Turkey about LNG 5 years ago. And Turkey answered in black and white in loud letters: no LNG through the Bosphorus. And rightly so, the tanker burned a little there? The Turks did not think a little. Well, and if the LNG tanker explodes, in the middle of Istanbul ...
    And so to figure it out, what the hell is Turkey? She is a hub herself. To breed competitors?

        Can you imagine the distance to Swinoujscie? First, regasify the gas and pay the Poles for it. Then pump it through a gas pipeline that is not ready for this (just in terms of volume). Then store them in gas storage facilities, which either do not exist or must be rented from Naftogaz. And Naftogaz doesn't need it in FIG. Naftogaz has Russian gas and does not need competitors. Therefore, he will not provide gas storage facilities. And there are no others and will not be. The gas pipeline network, through which distribution to consumers is carried out, also belongs to Naftogaz.
        So, from all sides - this is talk about nothing.
        LNG gas will be more expensive. The quality is worse, because there is only methane. And it will not be possible to separate high-molecular fractions (propane, butane, etc.) from this gas. They are not there. Using this gas for the gas chemical industry (if it remains in Ukraine) will not work for the same reason.
        Most likely, the Poles will sell Russian gas at the "American" price. And Ukraine cannot do anything. Because the calculation is not based on the composition of the gas, but on its calorific value.

        And the cherry on the cake will be that the "American" company will buy LNG in Ust-Luga and sell it in Swinoujscie as an "American" one. What has already happened. Logistics comes first.

        Swinoujscie. Have you heard?

        Still would. Such a name. laughing As you name the boat, so it will float. You will not have American "molecules of freedom", they treated you like a pig.

        American company Louisiana Natural Gas Exports Inc. (LNGE) refused to invest in the gas transportation infrastructure of Ukraine and to supply American̆ liquefied LNG to Kiev. This was announced on Monday, August 10, by RBC, citing a statement by the company's CEO Ben Blanchet.

        You can puff out your cheeks and say that this proud Ukraine refused. winked
