The Ukrainian GTS Operator has launched a tender for an additional purchase of 0.5 billion cubic meters of gas. Gas will be placed for storage in Ukrainian UGS facilities in the “Customs warehouse” mode. This was reported by the press service of Ukrtransgaz.
Director General of Ukraine’s GTS Operator Serhii Makohon assured that this tender for gas injection under the “Customs warehouse” mode will allow non-resident companies to take part in it without an obligation to create local subsidiaries.
Foreign companies that pump gas in the “Customs warehouse” mode do not require customs clearance for three years and are exempt from paying value added tax.
Recall, Ukrtransgaz asks the Cabinet of Ministers to cancel customs payments when storing gas in the Customs Warehouse mode. The company noted that additional difficulties arise for non-resident companies, which must find Ukrainian partners who will ensure customs payments for them in Ukraine.
Earlier it was reported that test gas supplies from Slovakia to Poland through the gas transmission system of Ukraine had been conducted.
