Gazprom has returned to the contractual daily volumes of gas transit through Ukraine of 109 million cubic meters of gas per day. General Director of the GTS Operator of Ukraine Serhiy Makohon announced this on Facebook.
"The volume of daily transit through Ukraine simply returned to the contractual volume of 109 million cubic meters after reducing to almost 57 million cubic meters in the first days of November. Gazprom did not book any additional volumes in excess of the transit contract. Therefore, it is not necessary to increase supplies to the EU through Ukraine," Makohon said.
He also noted that the transit of the same day in 2020 was 178.4 million cubic meters, and in 2019 it made 277.3 million cubic meters per day.
Ukraine is currently ready to transit up to 250 million cubic meters per day, which is 2.5 times higher than the available transit.
As it was reported, gas imports decreased by 77% or 510 million cubic meters compared to the previous month. In 10 months of 2021, Ukraine imported 2.535 billion cubic meters of gas, exports and re-exports amounted to 1.629 billion cubic meters.
