Tbilisi and Baku have returned to the project of constructing a terminal for liquefied natural gas (LNG) on the territory of Georgia. According to the head of the Ministry of Economy Levan Davitashvili, the government has started working on a project to supply energy from the Caspian Sea to Europe via Georgia.

Davitashvili noted that the joint project with Azerbaijan, Romania and Hungary started in 2015, but was stopped at the request of the European Union.

"Based on current events, when Europe is particularly interested in alternative sources of gas supply, everyone is talking about the diversification of energy supplies, this project has become particularly relevant this year", Davitashvili said.

The project assumes that the gas will be converted to a liquid state on the territory of Georgia, and then gasified in Romania. On the part of Georgia, the Oil and Gas Corporation participates in the project, Azerbaijan is represented by SOCAR.

"The unfreezing of the terminal construction project was the main topic of the visit of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev to Tbilisi in October, meetings of working groups have already begun", he added.

Levan Davitashvili noted that the project is being studied and the existing infrastructure is being evaluated on the territory of Georgia and Azerbaijan.
