Ukraine, US Discuss Liquefied Gas Deliveries: Kiev

Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin and US Senator for Oklahoma Jim Inhofe met for talks in Kiev and discussed deliveries of liquefied natural gas from the United States to Ukraine, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

“Special attention during the talks was paid to the strengthening of energy security in Ukraine, particularly through the supply of liquefied natural gas from the United States,” a statement published on the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s official website said.

Ukraine currently receives gas only through reverse flows from Europe. In June, Russian energy giant Gazprom switched Ukraine to a prepayment system due to its gas debt of over $5 billion. Russia and Ukraine are expected to sign a temporary gas delivery agreement for the winter period during trilateral Russia-Ukraine-EU talks in Brussels on October 29.
