On December 20, the Hungarian FGSZ ltd operator and GTS Operator of Ukraine LLC agreed on terms of cooperation regarding gas transportation at the points of connection between Beregovo and Beregdarots. This was reported by the GTS Operator of Ukraine press service.
"Today, the Hungarian operator FGSZ ltd and Operator GTS of Ukraine agreed on terms of cooperation at the points of connection between Beregovo and Beregdarots, which fully comply with the rules of cross-border cooperation and EU law," it was informed.
It is noted that the inter-operator agreement on the connection points between Hungary and Ukraine will enter into force on the first gas day of January 1, 2020.
“It is important to note that from January 1, 2020, standard business rules will apply at the Beregovo junction point. Until then they were blocked for other network users by a long-term contract with Gazprom,” the message reads.
Thus, the new GTS operator already has agreements on cooperation with Poland, Romania and Hungary. Negotiations on such contracts with Slovakia and Moldova are currently underway on a daily basis and are expected to be signed in the near future.
Earlier it was reported that representatives of the European Commission, Ukraine and the Russian Federation reached a final agreement on principled positions on the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine to European consumers and the settlement of mutual claims.
