Russian majority state-owned multinational energy corporation refused to reserve additional transit capacity through Ukraine for November, Interfax reports.

Gazprom bought only a third of the proposed transit capacity of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline.

The publication also noted that the results of auctions for the reservation of gas transmission capacity of the Polish and Ukrainian transit corridors in the deficit of 2021 have a strong impact on the price of gas on the spot market.

The operator of the gas transmission system of Ukraine distributed the offered capacities on two routes: at the gas measuring station (GMS) "Sudzha" offered 9.8 million cubic meters per day, and GMS "Sokhranivka" offered another 5.2 million cubic meters per day. All of them remained unclaimed," the statement reads.

As it was reported earlier, in September 2021, Gazprom booked only 4% of the additional guaranteed transit capacity. As a result, the average daily volume of Russian gas transportation through the territory of Ukraine decreased to 109 million cubic meters - to the minimum amount, according to the current transit agreement.

On October 6, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that it is not profitable for Gazprom to increase gas transit via Ukraine, since transit through the Ukrainian GTS is more expensive by $3 billion.
