“Naftogaz of Ukraine” has calculated tariffs for the transit of Russian gas to Europe in the next five years. About it reports “Interfax-Ukraine” with reference to the press service of the company.
The price for transit of raw materials will depend on the scope of the reservation of transit capacity of the Ukrainian gas transportation system. When booking 60 billion cubic meters, “Naftogaz” will provide the transit of gas for the price 3.21 USD per thousand cubic meters on 100 kilometers. When booking 90 billion cubic meters the price will be 2.56 dollar.
On 20 September it became known that Russia and Ukraine have failed to reach any agreement on the issue of transit of Russian gas negotiations with the participation of the European Union. Executive Director of “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Yuriy Vitrenko believes that Ukraine should prepare for the termination of gas transit through its territory from 1 January.
The current transit contract expires at the end of 2019. The European Commission invites countries to sign a long term agreement for 10 years, Russia — to extend the current contract for a year. Ukraine is not satisfied with the decision.
