The UK has dramatically increased its imports of liquefied natural gas, which it then pumps through pipelines to the continent.
Against the background of the war in Ukraine, European countries are seeking to diversify their energy supplies, and Britain is successfully serving as a center for importing liquefied natural gas. The sharp increase in shipments is evidenced by data from the Office for National Statistics, said on Monday The Guardian. Despite Brexit, this has led to a record monthly increase in exports of goods to the continent.
The Office for National Statistics released data showing that exports of goods from the European Union rose to £16.4bn in April, the highest monthly level at current prices since comparable records began in 1997.

Meanwhile Turkey announced yesterday about the start of laying a gas pipeline in the Black Sea. Ankara expects to produce the first million cubic meters of gas from the new Black Sea field at the beginning of 2023. According to experts, the level of gas production at the field in the Black Sea off the Turkish coast will reach its peak by 2026.
