Rick Perry, the U.S. Secretary of Energy goes with the working visit to Eastern Europe. He will negotiate with responsible officials in Ukraine, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Reuters reported this on Friday.

The official press release says that Perry is going to talk through a wide range of questions concerning coal exports, supplies of liquefied gas, nuclear energy and cybersecurity.

Donald Trump's administration seeks to settle coal and gas supplies to the EU market. The U.S. promotes its own energy carriers as the alternative to the Russian gas in Europe, which would let cut down the EU addiction from the Russian energy monopoly. On the other hand, the American liquefied gas is more expensive because of the transportation expenses.

In October, Polish PGNiG company turned to the U.S. and agreed on the contract to buy the gas from U.S. company Venture Global LNG. 

Besides, Trump's government seeks new market outlets for the U.S. coal, since the domestic demand has dropped to the historical minimum since 1983, as the coal power plants shut down. 

In June 2017, Ukrainian energy company Tsentrenergo agreed to buy 700,000 tons of U.S. coal.
