NaftoRynok analyzed a number of LPG sipping documents for 2024. In particular, the invoices within the Agreement on International Goods Traffic by Rail of the Russian Railways, copies of which the editorial office has.

It was established that the operator of the LPG terminal in the city of Sokulka – Barter S A (Po land) – the largest supplier of LPG from Poland to Ukraine, received at least 0.3 thousand tons of railway consignments of liquefied gas produced by the Lukoil and Sibur plants. The Bialchem Group terminal received over 0.2 thousand tons of resources from the Sibur and Uralorgsintez plants. Baltykgaz received over 0.2 thousand tons of gas shipped mainly from the Novokuibyshevska station (Rosneft Refinery’s gas shipment station). At the beginning of February 2024, a tank of liquefied gas mix was shipped from the Ust-Kut gas processing plant (Irkutskoil) to the Glob Terminal in Branevo. The Polish Intertransgaz received 0.2 thousand tons of LPG produced by the Kirishinaftaorgsintez plant (Kinef) with transshipment at the PHUB "TRASA" terminal, Aleksandra terminal. Besides, the Perm Oil Refinery (Lukoil) resources were addressed to the Evicor AG trader (Switzerland). The Polish Polski Gaz S A transshipped a railway consignment from Tobolsk at the Transgaz S A terminal in Malaszewicze and received a tank of the resource from the Perm Refinery at Siemianowka station.



The volumes confirmed by the shipping docu ments are only a small part of gas received by Polish gas transshipments. Russian plants had exported 101,700 t of liquefied gas to Poland by rail during February 2024, compared to 77,000 t in December 2023, when the European Council adopted the twelfth package of sanctions ban ning Russian LPG imports.

In its turn, since the beginning of 2024, Barter has shipped up to 15,700 tons to Ukrainian importers with a total cost of $9.6 million, Bialchem Group – 8,500 tons costing $5.3 million, Baltykgaz – 1,900 tons costing $1.15 million, Glob Terminal – 7.1 thousand tons costing $5.8 million

In March 2024, the Energy Customs of Ukraine began an in-depth analysis of operations for the supply of LPG produced in the EU by mixing its components from different countries of origin.

In compliance with Article 38(1) of the Customs Code of Ukraine, production and technological operations are considered economically unjustified if they are carried out with the aim of evading the application of restrictive measures (import ban, sanctions, etc.).

The measures are due to the fact that a number of LPG terminals for transshipment of Russian gas on the northeastern border of Poland with Belarus started selling domestically produced gas with certificates of origin "EU countries" to Ukrainian importers in January 2024. At the same time, shipment takes place from terminals or gas storage and mixing stations, rather than from classic production plants that have the appropriate facilities for processing raw materials into a marketable product. The sellers of this gas to Ukrainian importers are both Polish companies and traders registered in Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Estonia, etc.
