As previously reported, in the report of the International energy Agency “Global Gas Security Review 2016” means that due to the technical obsolescence of the Ukrainian gas transport system is not able to operate at full capacity. In particular, the document notes that Ukraine has significant opportunities for the transit of gas, which allow to transport gas to Europe throughout the year, but the GTS puts these perspectives into question.

Recall that in early December “Naftogaz of Ukraine” canceled a tender for the modernization of the GTS, carried out “Ukrtransgaz” on the amount of 4.13 billion. Then the cause of the rejection of modernization called the unreasonableness of such decision in relation to the risk of the introduction of the Russian Federation in the operation of the “Turkish stream.”
