The head of Naftogaz Ukraine Andrew KOBOLEV

The head of Naftogaz predicts that the amount of compensation in a dispute with Gazprom will take 2-3 months.

The calculation of the amounts of compensation due to a separate decision of the Stockholm arbitration on the dispute of Naftogaz with Gazprom, will take 2-3 months. This was stated by the head of Naftogaz Andrey Kobelev on air of TV channel 1+1 on the evening of 4 June.

“We were able to revise the price since 2014 this means that the amount of gas which Naftogaz bought from Russia’s Gazprom since that time Gazprom will have to compensate us a certain amount. The final payment of compensation in both directions is, according to my estimates, about 2-3 months,” he said.

According to KOBOLEV, the first decision concerned the case of the supply of gas, and now pending the decision on the dispute on gas transit, which according to schedule should be until the end of June, but may be imposed later.

The head of Naftogaz said that if Gazprom refuses to implement the decision of the Stockholm arbitration, it will be unprecedented.
