In Naftogaz said that the Ukrainian gas transmission system is fully balanced and operates in the normal mode.
“Now the pressure drop in the main gas pipeline system, arising from non-compliance with Gazprom the contract for the supply and transit of gas through Ukraine completely stopped due to increase of gas imports from the European direction”, – said the press service of the company.
“Thanks to the prompt implementation of a response plan by the Ukrainian authorities, as well as the high level of public consciousness of Ukrainians who actively joined the campaign #fasten and voluntarily reduced the temperature in their homes by one degree, according to the operative data for the past day in all regional centers and large cities of Ukraine, the consumption was reduced by approximately 25 million cubic meters (14%) compared to March 1 “, – noted in the company, and thanked the Central and local authorities, heat producers and commercial consumers to respond to the situation.
“We are also grateful to our European partners who have demonstrated solidarity and helped to quickly increase the supply of fuel with the EU”, – said the Chairman of the Board NAK “Naftogaz Ukraine” Andriy KOBOLEV.
In “Naftogaz” added that he has not received from “Gazprom” there are no documents regarding the intention to cancel the contracts on supply and transit of gas. The company noted that the existing contracts do not provide for the possibility of termination unilaterally.
Recall Russian Gazprom refused to supply gas to Ukraine from March 1 and returned the paid money. In connection with the decision of the Stockholm arbitration, Ukraine has to buy every year from the Russian Federation (up to 2019, when the end of the contract) 4 billion cubic meters of gas (earlier it was 50 billion cubic meters). If Naftogaz buys gas, then automatically applies the formula of “take or pay” – that is, Kiev needs to pay even those amounts that have not bought. Therefore, “Naftogaz” was waiting for the final arbitration award, which was announced on 28 February to begin the compulsory purchase.
In “Naftogaz” noted that the refusal of Gazprom to supply gas automatically means that during 2018 to Ukraine will not be subject to “take or pay”.
Later “Gazprom” has declared that not only breaks with Ukraine contracts on gas supply and transit the territory of Ukraine to Europe. Then “Gazprom” has declared that will not stop the transit of gas through Ukraine “right now”.
