The Ukrainian Gas Transport System Operator company reported that the volume of gas transported, according to a new transit agreement with Gazprom, reached 2 billion cubic meters from January to May 2020. This is 46% less than the same period last year. This was reported by the press service of the GTS state company.
The company said that in January-May of this year, the average daily transit regime amounted to 132 million cubic meters of gas, and since March it has been fixed at the level of 150-155 million cubic meters per day.
"If this rate is maintained, the annual transit volume may reach 52-55 billion cubic meters, which will be the lowest figure in the entire history of the Ukrainian gas transportation system," the statement said.
At the same time, since the beginning of the year, Gazprom has fully paid for the reserved capacity of gas transit from the Russian Federation (65 billion cubic meters for 2020).
It is also reported that the GTS side "fulfills all daily requests and will continue to ensure the uninterrupted gas transportation to European countries," the state-owned company concluded.
