Gazprom supplies 43.96 mln cubic meters of gas for Europe through Ukraine via Sudzha

Gazprom supplies gas for Europe through Ukraine in the volume of 43.96 mln cubic meters per day via the Sudzha gas pumping station, Gazprom Spokesman Sergey Kupriyanov told reporters, adding that the request for pumping through Sokhranovka was rejected by the Ukrainian side, Trend reports with reference to TASS.

"Gazprom supplies Russian gas for transit through Ukrainian territory in the volume confirmed by the Ukrainian side via the Sudzha gas pumping station - 43.96 mln cubic meters as of May 28. The request for the Sokhranovka gas pumping station has been rejected," he said. The day before, the pumping volume reached 43.6 mln cubic meters.

Earlier reports said with reference to data released on the website of the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) that Russian gas transit through Ukrainian territory might total 43.7 mln cubic meters on May 28.

On May 10, the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine said it would shut down transit of gas to Europe via the Sokhranovka station starting May 11 due to force majeure as the company could allegedly not control the Novopskov gas compressor station in the Lugansk Region. Consequently, transportation nominations will be rejected, with gas not to be accepted.

However, the Russian gas holding did not see any grounds for suspension of pumping in the previous form, noting that it did not receive any confirmation of the force majeure circumstances. The company added that it was technologically impossible to shift all transit volumes to another interconnection point, the Sudzha gas distribution station in Russia’s Kursk Region.
