Нафтогаз не будет платить за поставки газа ЛДНР

Naftogaz of Ukraine as before is not going to pay for delivered Russian gas LDNR

Ukrainian company noted that it would not accept gas on gas distribution stations in the Donbass.

Naftogaz Ukrainy does not intend to pay for gas supplies with Gazprom on the uncontrolled territory of Donbass, reports the press service of the company.

“Naftogaz of Ukraine buys gas from Gazprom from November 2015, and before that imported gas solely through the entry points of the GTS on the territory controlled by Ukraine. All bought by Naftogaz, the volume of gas considered by the parties and paid by Naftogaz. The company expects a decision on all mutual claims existing between Naftogaz and Gazprom contracts will make arbitration”, – is spoken in the message.

The company noted that Gazprom invited Naftogaz to pay $0,67 billion for gas supplied by the Russian company in the uncontrolled territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions for the period from February 2015 to April 2016.

“Naftogaz does not accept the gas contract with Gazprom at gas metering stations (GIS) Prokhorovka and Platovo. Data on supply of gas through said GIS cannot be used in the preparation of acts of delivery-acceptance of natural gas and, accordingly, the volume of gas not subject to the payment by Naftogaz of Ukraine”, – specify in a press-service.

As it was reported earlier that Gazprom has once again demanded to pay for the delivered gas LDNR, as well as increased the claim to Naftogaz to $31,75 billion.
