Energy Union: Ukraine asked Qatar to help it with the construction of an LNG terminal

75

Some details of the trip of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky with a delegation to the Middle Eastern state of Qatar have become known. According to the latest information, an "energy alliance" has been concluded between Qatar and Ukraine, which ultimately involves the supply of liquefied gas from a Middle Eastern country to one of the Ukrainian ports by sea.


The corresponding memorandum was reportedly signed by the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine and Qatar's state oil and gas company Qatar Petroleum. On the basis of the memorandum, Qatar promises Ukraine "to help with the construction of an LNG terminal."

Also, according to the latest data, Ukraine has requested assistance from Qatar in the exploration and production of gas. It is reported that Kiev expects Doha to invest in gas projects to be implemented on Ukrainian territory, as well as direct gas supplies from Qatar using LNG tankers.

The official document says that Ukraine "intends to continue along the path of diversifying energy supplies." From the doc:

This will help Ukraine's sustainable economic development and energy security.

Noteworthy is the fact that this memorandum is designed for three years - exactly for the period during which Volodymyr Zelenskyy will remain the president of Ukraine. At the same time, it was added that the memorandum could be extended for another three years. Apparently, during this period, the Ukrainian authorities intend to build an LNG terminal on their territory to receive the aforementioned Qatari liquefied gas.

It should be recalled that several years ago in Ukraine they already announced plans to create a terminal for regasification and storage of LNG. It was planned that it will be a special vessel, which will be located in the area of ​​the Odessa seaport. The project was never implemented, as they say in Ukraine, because of the position of Turkey. Ankara prevents large LNG carriers and regasification vessels from passing through the Bosphorus and Dardanelles.

In this regard, it will be interesting to follow the position of Turkey in 2021.

      Considering that Qatar is a moldy friend of Turkey, which supplies drums to Svidomo, a curious configuration emerges and this must be taken very seriously.

      Paying is not Ukrainian. Ze was going to spin the gas from the Qataris. laughing good

      It was in the UAE, not Qatar.
      . "Strana" learned the name of the man who was detained for organizing the shooting of naked girls in Dubai. The depraved shots angered the local community, and on the same day the models were detained by the police. For this photo session, they will get six months in prison.

      According to Strana sources, Vitaly Grechin, a resident of Kiev, was detained for filming naked Ukrainian women in Dubai. He, according to our information, was the organizer of the trip itself and the scandalous photo session.


      Grechin claimed that he was collaborating with the American embassy in a project to build a diplomatic town for Americans in Ukraine. However, 11 years after this interview, no diplomatic town has appeared.

      In the same interview, Grechin said that he is familiar with Barack Obama, the President of the United States, and even financed his election campaign in the United States.

      Heh.

      The problem is in the gas carriers going through the center of Istanbul along the straits.
      A floating bomb is a bomb, the Turks will never agree to that! Victims and destruction, God forbid, will be according to the Beirut scenario, where saltpeter exploded ...

      Well, the question of the price of gas and the construction of terminals (with these funds it is better to repair the GTS, it will be more efficient).

      Qatar after the 2017 crisis has become a de facto vassal of Turkey. For it was Erdogan who saved this emirate from a change in orientation and a ruling family right up to Doha from the UAE and the Saudis. Now in Qatar there is a permanent base of Turkey, Qatar takes an active part in Erdogan's adventures, for example, the powerful military aviation of the emirate is working on the transportation of Turkish weapons. Qatar orders weapons mainly from Turkey. Qatar is actively investing in Turkey.

        Who is whose vassal is an open question. It is necessary to consider how much money Qatar is pouring into the Turkish economy. And does Qatar have any subjectivity at all? More like England has hired Turkey to guard its gas company called Qatar.

      With the completion of the SP-2, everything can gradually end. And if Ukraine decides to provoke against the RF Armed Forces, then gas from Russia will run out immediately. And in the first winter, a new Maidan, burning tires in Kiev, if by that time Ukraine as a state will still be in Kiev!

      And what is there to think about? The Turks are building a terminal for Qatari gas and are selling this gas to Ukraine. The whole question is in the solvency of the latter. The Black Sea ports of Ukraine will be used as security, so that soon they (the ports) will be under the Turks.

    what Do they have people capable of working, and not creating the appearance of hectic activity, or are there only clowns, comedians and crazy people at the helm? How are they going to pay for the terminal, where will they get money for its maintenance and how will they pay for gas? Are these idiots thinking about this, twisted in the clouds or not?

    This circus cannot be stopped.
    In the morning at breakfast I don't watch TV, because there is only one advertisement, I read comments on Zenzor, a circus in real life.
