Russia and Poland Agreed on New Gas Supply Rules

September 22, 2010
The Polish gas concern PGNiG and Gazprom have agreed on the conditions for a new contract for supplying Russian gas to Poland. According to Prime-TASS, the Polish company has proposed buying 9 billion cubic meters of gas in 2010 and 9.3 billion cubic meters of gas in 2011 and over 10 billion cubic meters of gas in 2012.
Moreover, the contract envisions the final volumes being corrected in light of real consumption.
The gas to be supplied by Gazprom will compensate for gas not being supplied by RosUkrEnergo.
RosUkrEnergo, the intermediary company operating in Ukraine and East and Central Europe, stopped pumping gas to Poland in January 2009 in the midst of the Russian-Ukrainian gas spat that winter. Later Gazprom took up RosUkrEnergo's obligations under the contract with Poland, Lenta.ru reports.
