In January 2020, the transit of natural gas from Russia to Europe through Ukraine amounted to 2,55 billion cubic meters, while transit services were paid at the rate of 5,52 billion cubic meters. It was reported by the Chairman of LLC Operator of Gas Transmission System of Ukraine Serhiy Makogon on his Facebook page.
"The paid capacity is used at 46%," he said.
As we reported earlier, Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities may interest Poland, Moldova, Romania and Hungary as Executive Director of Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine Serhiy Makohon informed about it on Facebook.
“We have significant infrastructure possibilities, which are not used fully now. For example, Ukrainian gas storages are the largest in Europe but currently, less than 50% is used. Our neighbors might be interested in our services on gas storage, particularly, Poland that announced the plans on the extension of its own gas storage. Moldova, Romania and Hungary also possess such need,” Makohon wrote.
He also underlined that the development of regional cooperation should become one of the priorities of the energy policy of Ukraine in the coming years.
