Port of Batumi


Batumi is a seaside city on the Black Sea coast and capital of Adjara, an autonomous republic in southwest Georgia. Etablished in 1878, Batumi port is located on a bay just northeast of the Batumi city about 20 kilometres from the Georgian-Turkish border. Sometimes considered Georgia's second capital, with a population of 180,000 as of the 2008 census, Batumi serves as a significant cargo port and passenger terminal port aside from being a historical retail centre.

Riou pulls out of Vendee Globe

Former winner Vincent Riou became the seventh skipper to pull out of the Vendee Globe yacht race a day after tearing a hole in his hull when colliding with a metallic bouy, his team announced on Sunday.

"It was a tough decision but the only reasonable one," said Riou.

He had been in third place in the solo round-the-world race early Saturday and was in hot pursuit of a second win after his victory in the event in 2004-2005.

But all that changed when he heard a sudden loud crack in the early hours of Saturday while racing off the coast of Brazil.


"I heard the collision at 05h00, a huge cracking sound, and the boat is badly damaged with a 130 centimetre rip down the right side, four or five metres from the stern," explained Riou on Saturday, Nov.24, 2012.

The Black Sea LNG terminal project is important for Ukraine's efforts aimed at diversifying natural gas supplies as its existing pipeline network only facilitates imports from Russia.

"According to our estimates, the price of gas (imported through the LNG terminal) will be at least 20 percent lower than that of Russian gas," Kaskiv told reporters.

Ukraine plans to launch the LNG terminal in 2015 using a floating offshore regasification facility and complete the construction of an onshore facility by 2018, allowing it to import about 10 billion cubic metres of gas a year. ($1=0.7717 euros)
