KIEV, June 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine has accumulated 13.4 billion cubic meters of gas in its underground storage facilities, Ukraine’s parliament-appointed Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said.
“At least 18.5 cubic meters of gas will be enough for the autumn and winter heating season,” Yatsenyuk told the government session on Wednesday.
Ukraine and Russia continue talks on the revision of the gas price in the contract on gas supplies.
Ukraine is a transit country for Russian gas exports to Europe, and Ukrainian crisis can hamper gas supplies to European consumers. In order to avoid supply disruption, the consultations within the Russia-Ukraine-European Commission format were started in May.
The throughput capacity of the Ukrainian gas transportation is 288 billion cubic meters system at the entrance and 178.5 billion cubic meters at the exit, including 142.5 billion cubic meters to European countries and 3.5 billion cubic meters to Moldova.
Ukraine’s gas transportation system consists of 72 compressor stations, 110 production shops and 1,451 gas distribution stations. The overall length of gas pipelines operated by the company is 38,600 kilometers, including 22,200 kilometers of trunk pipelines and 16,400 kilometers of extensions.
