Naftogaz will supply gas to Moldova

NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine won the first tender for the supply of gas to the Moldovan state-owned company S.A. Energocom, according to which 500 thousand cubic meters of gas will be transported on October 29, the press service reports.

The contract for the supply of the gas consignment is formalized as an additional contract to the framework agreement between NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine and S.A. Energocom.

“The National Joint Stock Company will continue to participate in tenders for the purchase of additional volumes of gas by the Moldovan side. If the tender proposal is approved, Naftogaz is ready to supply the required volumes of gas to Moldova,” the message says.

Earlier, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine decided to provide assistance for gas supplies to Moldova in case of such a need.

To recap:

On October 22, a state of emergency was declared in Moldova due to critical gas prices. The country cannot agree with the Russian Gazprom on the price for the supply of natural gas.

The Prime Minister of Moldova said that the country would continue negotiations with Gazprom on a new gas supply contract.

On October 25, an official representative of Gazprom said that the company could completely stop gas supplies to the country if Chisinau did not pay off the debt and sign a new contract from December 1.

On October 25, the Moldovan government, for the first time in 30 years, bought natural gas, not from the Russian Gazprom but signed a contract for the supply of 1 million cubic meters of gas with a Polish state-owned company.

Europe said it would help Moldova solve the gas crisis.

Moldova continued to buy gas from European companies and signed another supply contract with a Dutch company.

One of the European publications reported that Gazprom offered Moldova a new gas deal in exchange for weakening ties with the EU.

The European Commission has allocated €60 million to Moldova to overcome the crisis that has arisen in the country due to the gas shortage and difficult negotiations with Gazprom.

On October 28, Poland once again won a tender for the supply of gas to Moldova.

Moldova borrowed gas from Ukraine and Romania.
