Naftogaz offers different transit route to Gazprom - source in Naftogaz
Naftogaz has offered Gazprom to pump gas through the gas metering stations Pisarevka (Rostov region) and Valuyki (Belgorod region) instead of the Sudzha gas metering station (Kursk region) initially proposed by Gazprom, a source in Naftogaz told Interfax.
The source said Gazprom filed a request for the transit of 62.7 million cubic meters of gas a day through the Orlivka gas metering station (Odesa region) on the Romanian border, 13.9 million cubic meters of gas a day to consumers in Moldova, and 22.2 million cubic meters of gas a day through the Uzhgorod gas metering station on the Slovak border at around 1:00 a.m. on January 14.
In response, Naftogaz proposed to transport 62.2 million cubic meters of gas a day through the Pisarevka gas measuring station and 36.6 million cubic meters of gas through the Valuyki gas measuring station, said the source.
In addition, Ukrainian dispatchers have again informed their Russian colleagues about the need to discuss the technical conditions for the transfer and receipt of gas, said the source.
Interfax has no comments on the matter from the Russian side.
