The National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission has approved Ukrtransnafta’s license for the supply of electricity. This was reported by the press service.
The decision to issue a license was adopted by the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission at a meeting on November 5.
“Ukrtransnafta appealed to the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission with a statement on obtaining a license for the right to carry out economic activities for the supply of electric energy to the consumer and a package of necessary documents on October 22, 2019”, the message said.
Recall that yesterday a new Head of the National Energy and Utilities Regulatory Commission Valery Tarasyuk was elected. Oksana Kryvenko remains a member of the National Regulatory Commission.
Earlier it was reported that for 5 months Ukrtransnafta received 3.5 million euros of compensation for contaminated oil.
Recall that due to organochlorine entering Druzhba oil pipeline, Russian oil was not accepted in Slovakia and Hungary, where Ukrtransnafta transports oil. In this regard, the company was forced to suspend transit from April 25 to May 11, 2019, and also from May 17 to May 21, 2019. The stop of oil transmission to the EU countries did not affect the transit volumes of Russian oil in April, but significantly affected the volumes in May.
