Gazprom may save the transit of gas through Ukraine

Газпром может сохранить транзит газа через Украину

Russian gas monopoly Gazprom has never raised the question of waiver of gas transit through the territory of Ukraine, said the head of the company.

The transit of gas through Ukraine can be maintained in the amount of 10-15 billion cubic meters per year, if the Ukrainian side to Gazprom will prove the economic feasibility of the new contract. This was stated by the head of the Russian concern Alexey Miller, RIA Novosti reported.

“We never raised the question of refusal from the Ukrainian transit. But Russia’s resource base shifting to the North, and Central gas transmission corridor simply does not have the resources in the previous volumes,” – said the head of Gazprom.

Recall that according to the decision of the Stockholm arbitration on the gas dispute between Russia and Ukraine, Gazprom owes Naftogaz of 2.56 billion for failure to supply the agreed volumes of gas. Gazprom in March announced the termination of contracts with Naftogaz appealed the court’s decision.
