April 25, 2014

Ukraine’s energy company Naftogaz Ukrainy has ordered pipeline operator Ukrtransgas to initiate reverse supplies of 4.08 million cubic meters of gas through Poland under a contract with Germany’s RWE, Ukrtransgas spokeswoman Yelena Mostitskaya told RIA Novosti on April 24.

“We have an order from Naftogaz under a contract with RWE through Poland, the whole volume ordered for May has been shipped, with the daily amount standing at 4.08 million cubic meters,” Mostitskaya said.

Ukraine restarted gas purchases from European countries under the framework contracts it signed earlier in April, after Russia doubled the gas price.

Naftogaz hopes to receive 37 billion cubic meters of gas from the European countries annually, including 1.5 billion cubic meters from Poland and 5.5 billion cubic meters from Hungary.
