Ukraine increases volumes of gas import from Slovakia
Since January 14, Kyiv requests almost 27 mln cubic meters of gas per day, Eustream reports
Ukraine increased the import of gas from Europe via the territory of Slovakia. Since January 14, the Ukrainian side requests 27 million cubic metres per day; previously, it was 11 million. Eustream, Slovak pipeline operator, reported this January 14, as quoted by UNN.
According to Eustream, from January 1 through January 13, almost 195 mln cubic meters of the blue fuel were imported through Slovakia to Ukraine via Vojany-Uzhgorod pipeline.
January 12, joint stock company Naftogaz Ukrainy reported that it resumed the import of European gas, with the use of the loan earlier provided by the EBRD.
Previously this month, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk announced Kyiv refuses to purchase Russian gas at the price of 212 USD per a thousand cubic meters. According to him, such price is profitless and non-competitive compared to those at the European gas market.
After the unusually warm December 2015, the average temperatures of January 2016 meet the natural valuation of temperatures in Ukraine at this time of year. Due to the low temperatures, the gas consumption around the country grew significantly.
