The State Service of Maritime and River Transport of Turkmenistan are studying the possibility of transporting liquefied natural gas in special containers to the port of Baku.
At present, negotiations are underway, and is studied the question of delivering Turkmenistan liquefied gas to Europe via the Romanian port Constanta (the Black Sea region).
It is planned that the merchant marine vessels of Turkmenistan liquefied gas will be transported in special containers at the port of Baku, and thence to the ports of Batumi and Poti (Georgia, Black Sea Region) by railway.
Next, from the ports of Georgia, containers will be transported by ship to Romania or other Black Sea countries. The same scheme can be applied to other Turkmen goods that can be transported in containers.
Previously Turkmenistan expressed interest in gas pipeline project AGRI, Azerbaijan-Georgia-Romania Interconnector (AGRI), providing for the delivery of liquefied gas through the Black Sea coast of Georgia to Romania.
The project initially involves transporting of Azerbajanian gas via pipelines to the Black Sea coast of Georgia, where the gas will be liquefied at a special terminal, after which the tankers will be delivered to the terminal in Romania.
Further, the liquefied gas will be brought into the state of natural gas, and using with already existing in the country the gas infrastructure will be sent to meet the needs of Romania and other European countries. Turkmenistan for participating in the project as a supplier could supply liquefied natural gas across the Caspian Sea to Azerbaijan for further transit to Europe.
