The Prime Minister of the Republika Srpska, Radovan Višković, stated that a facility for converting natural gas into liquefied gas should be built in the Zvornik area, and that a Russian investor is interested in this project.
“Gas is transported in liquid form to the location of consumers. Converting natural gas into a liquid is done for those consumers for whom it is impossible or not cost-effective to build gas infrastructure,” Višković told RTRS in Moscow, where he met with representatives of several companies regarding the gasification project of the Republika Srpska.
The Prime Minister of Republika Srpska noted that the Gacko Thermal Power Plant could use liquefied gas instead of fuel oil, adding that there are other potential users.
“We have agreed to create a project task and assess which other consumers, besides the Gacko Thermal Power Plant, would be beneficiaries. We will survey all potential users and provide the parameters to the future investor, after which the investment amount will be known,” Višković said.
The Minister of Energy and Mining of Republika Srpska, Petar Đokić, also attended the meeting and emphasized that some companies in Republika Srpska have expressed the need for natural gas usage for many years.
“The study will be prepared in collaboration with the potential investor,” Đokić told RTRS.
The Prime Minister of Republika Srpska, Radovan Višković, who is on a working visit to the Russian Federation, will also meet with representatives of the “Zarubežnjeft ” company:
