The new project to send liquefied Azeri gas to Romania via Georgia has interested Ukraine as well. Its Energy Minister Yuri Boiko has stated that Kiev is ready to participate in this project and purchase 10 billion cubic metres of liquid gas. He also said that Ukraine will need to construct a terminal to transform the liquid gas back into natural gas at an estimated cost of USD 1 billion.

Boiko added that he has had meetings with possible Azeri partners already. As is known, on April 13 Georgia, Azerbaijan and Romania signed a memorandum in Bucharest on the implementation of this project.
