Construction of the pipeline will be carried out by the Ukrtransgaz company, namely by the Ukrgazprombud construction and installation company.
Total length of the pipeline will be 65 kilometers, diameter - 1000 mm, the construction cost will be 856 million euros. Project implementation period is 2011-2017. Construction of the terminal will be financed by a public-private partnership.
The total volume of the tanks will allow storing 540 thousand cubic meters of liquefied gas.
