Prime Minister of the Republic of Srpska Radovan Viskovic discussed in Moscow with the representatives of the Sapienti company about the gasification project.
Viskovic said that a facility for converting natural gas into a liquid, worth 20 million euros, is planned to be built in the Zvornik area. He explained that gas will be transported in a liquid state to the consumer’s location. Converting natural gas into a liquid is done for those consumers for whom it is impossible or uneconomical to build a gas infrastructure. The Russian company Sapienti is interested in investing in this project. TPP Gacko could potentially use liquid gas instead of fuel oil, and there are other potential users.
Minister of Energy and Mining Petar Djokic also attended the meeting and emphasized that some companies in the Republic of Srpska have expressed the need for long-term usage of natural gas.
A study will be prepared in collaboration with the potential investor, based on which the advantages of using gas compared to their previous energy sources for production will be demonstrated. Djokic added that users of this system could be large energy facilities, such as the Banja Luka district heating company.
