Thus, on October 2, 0.61 million cubic meters of gas were pumped into the underground gas storages; then the pumping stopped.
As of morning, October 4, the volume made 18.875.94 million cubic meters. During the past 24 hours, the gas in storage reduced by 0.01 million cubic meters.
As we reported, Ukraine stopped pumping natural gas into its underground storage facilities. The media noted that the stop was influenced by the cessation of Russian Gazprom's transit of natural gas through Ukraine to Hungary from October 1, 2021, as gas imports from Hungary to Ukraine took place through a virtual reverse.
As it was reported earlier, in the beginning of September Naftogaz CEO Yuriy Vitrenko declared that Ukraine has accumulated more reserves in its underground gas storage facilities than the Cabinet of Ministers had planned – up to 19 billion cubic meters.
