the Chapter “Operator GTS of Ukraine” Sergey Makogon confirmed on Saturday in Facebook that the new contract with Gazprom for pumping allowed us to reduce the price of gas for Ukrainian consumers. On the contrary, the failure of the transaction could cause an increase in the cost of transportation of fuel four times, said Makogon.
In the publication, the head of Ukrainian gas company presented data on the effect of running in January of the gas pipeline “Turkish stream” on the distribution of gas flows. According to Makogon, Ukraine has lost 15 billion cubic meters of transit per year. Moldova will have to save, as she remained with the transit of gas only for Romania (around five million cubic meters per day). But may lose it if Romania will start receiving gas through Bulgaria.
“Gazprom” and “Naftogaz” signed a package of agreements on continuation of gas supplies through Ukraine on December 30. Both sides refused lawsuits that have not made decisions, and “Gazprom” to Kiev has paid $ 2.9 billion for the verdict of the Stockholm arbitration.
