Background

In September 2018 Irish-based Petrel Resource submitted a proposal to Russian state gas monopoly Gazprom to develop a liquefied natural gas export facility on the Crimean Peninsula.[1] The export terminal would be fed primarily by a gas pipeline from existing discoveries in western Siberia and central Asia.[1]

In July 2018 the Ukrainian embassy in Ireland warned Petrel that the Ukraine did not recognize Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea, and urged Petrel not to build a terminal in a part of the Crimea controlled by Russia.[2]
