Ukraine imported its first cargo of American liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG, this week, according to traders and Refinitiv Eikon, Reuters reports. The Ladybower, a small gas carrier, docked Monday with about 6,000 tons of LPG, originally from Houston. In June, the Kremlin banned transshipment of Kazakh LPG to Ukraine and restricted Russian exports to a permit-only basis. Last year, Ukraine was Russia’s second-largest LPG market after Poland, importing 800,000 tons of fuel. Also known as butane or propane, LPG is used for cooking, heating and powering vehicles.
