Ukraine's GTS will fulfill request for Russian gas transit increased to 315 mcm
Naftogaz Ukrainy has confirmed its readiness to fulfill the daily request of PJSC Gazprom for transit of Russian gas to Europe in the amount of 315 million cubic meters (mcm), replacing Nord Stream stopped for repairs.
"Over the past seven days the daily application for transit of Russian gas through Ukraine has increased by 47 million cubic meters. Naftogaz Ukrainy is ready to ensure the implementation of the enlarged applications in full, although such significant fluctuations in transit volumes are not stipulated by the terms of the contract between Naftogaz and Gazprom," Naftogaz said.
At the same time, according to data from Ukrtransgaz, at the Sudzha point of connection of gas transmission systems, the largest one in terms of gas supplies from the Russian Federation, today the pressure is 57 atm, which is 3 atm below the level stipulated by the transit agreement with Gazprom.
Naftogaz notes the maximum capacity of the Ukrainian GTS in the direction of Europe is more than 400 million cubic meters per day, while in contrast to Nord Stream halted for repairs such work at the Ukrainian GTS is conducted in the working mode and does not require termination of transit.
