KIEV, October 3 (Itar-Tass) - In the nine months of 2013 Ukraine has received about 1.5 billion cubic meters of gas transported from Hungary and Poland, Ukrtransgaz reported.
Last month “a total of 343.2 million cubic meters of gas was supplied to Ukraine (this is by 41% more than in August)”, the company said.
As of September 30, Poland has supplied 1.8 million cubic meters and Hungary 8.9 million cubic meters. In November 2012 Ukraine started receiving gas via Poland and Hungary. Supplies are being made under the contract with Germany’s RWE Supply and Trading, Ukrtransgaz said.
In January-September gas import from the EU exceeded the planning data. The government reported that this year gas import under the RWE contract should have to reach 1.3 billion cubic meters.
Kiev intensifies gas supplies from the EU countries amidst reducing of gas purchases in compliance with the contract with Russia’s Gazprom. Ukrtansgaz said in the eight months of 2013 Russian gas import decreased by 29% as compared with the same period of 2012.
