Since the beginning of the year, gas transit decreased by 46% compared to last year.

The GTS Operator of Ukraine reported that the total volume of gas transported by the Ukrainian GTS in accordance with the new transit agreement with Gazprom reached 20 billion cubic meters. This is 46% less than in the same period last year (36.9 billion cubic meters).

“In January-May 2020, the average daily transit regime amounted to 132 million cubic meters of gas, and since March it has been fixed at the level of 150-155 million cubic meters/day,” the company said.

It is noted that while maintaining this pace, the annual transit volume may reach 52-55 billion cubic meters, which will be the lowest figure in the history of the Ukrainian gas transmission system.

At the same time, since the beginning of the year Gazprom has fully paid for the capacity reserved for gas transit from the Russian Federation (65 billion cubic meters for 2020).

Recall that the OGTSU will be a declarant for foreign companies which store gas in Ukraine.

 Earlier it was reported that the deputies of Ukraine want to declare illegal the unbundling of Naftogaz.
