“No one has asked Eustream to join the joint venture to manage Ukraine’s gas transportation system. Our company has not received such proposals,” the spokesperson said.
On August 18, sources familiar with the matter told PRIME that three western companies, including U.S. Chevron, will bid to manage Ukraine’s gas transportation system.

A 51% stake in the operator must be held by the government, while the rest can be owned by Ukrainian, EU, U.S. companies or any participant of the European Energy Community.
