March 26, 2024

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed interest in purchasing liquified natural gas from Canada while on his first visit to Canada.

While giving an interview in Montreal on CTV’s Question Period the Greek prime minister said that his country was “of course” interested in buying LNG from Canada.

Mitsotakis’ visit marks the first time a Greek prime minister has travelled to Canada in over 40 years.

“We are a big entry point for LNG, not just for the Greek market, but also for the Balkans, for Eastern Europe,” said Mitsotakis. “Theoretically, we could even supply Ukraine.”

According to Natural Resources Canada, the country currently has eight LNG projects “in various stages of development” with the first export facility scheduled to begin exporting shipments to Asia in 2025.

However, shipping LNG to Europe has become a political bone of contention due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the response of many European countries to quit buying Russian oil.
