Naftogaz-Ukraine insists on signing a new contract with a new operator of Ukrainian natural gas transmission system, which will be withdrawn from Naftogaz group.
"Relations between natural gas transmission system operator of Ukraine and Gazprom have to comply with the requirements of the European energetic legislation, which Ukraine imposes as a member of the Energetic Society. Gazprom works with all the counterparts in the European Union on the same principles. We are sure that the promotion of such rules will simplify the work of the Russian company with Ukraine," the message reads.
It is noted that Ukraine invited Gazprom representatives to participate in the public discussion of a new methodology of tariff creation based on the European rules.
Naftogaz mentioned that the company was ready for the contract extension in the next month.
