The diplomat added that Russian companies may show interest in diversifying Costa Rica’s petroleum products market rather than solely being interested in petroleum products.

“The Costa Ricans know that we have big experience in building gas and oil pipelines. Maybe they will try to agree and explore our experience in this area”, he said.

“There is no production at all. They bring oil products from abroad, and in sufficiently large number. The volume of imported products is about US$4 to US$5 billion dollars annually”, Kudachkin said.

May 8 marked the 75th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Costa Rica.
