KIEV, March 16. /TASS/. Ukraine’s daily gas imports from Hungary increased tenfold to a record 7.4 million cubic meters, the Ukrainian gas transportation network operator Ukrtransgaz said on Monday.
‘As of 6:00 [04:00 GMT] on March 16, daily natural gas supplies to Ukraine from Hungary amounted to 7.4 million cubic meters. From March 7 to March 12, when gas supplies from Hungary were increased, the deliveries stood at 0.72 million cubic meters per day," Ukrtransgaz said in a statement.
In the first half of March, Ukraine’s imports from Hungary totaled 52 million cubic meters, Ukrtransgaz said.
Ukraine’s gas imports from the European Union totaled 2.3 billion in January-February 2015 or 56% of total deliveries. The other gas volume came from Russia under a contract between the Ukrainian national energy company Naftogaz and Gazprom.
Ukraine’s major gas suppliers are currently Russia and European countries that resupply Russian natural gas in a reverse-flow mode.
Ukraine imported 4.1 billion cubic meters of natural gas over the past two months, including 2.3 billion cubic meters from Europe, according to data provided in March by Ukrtransgaz.
In the same period last year, Ukraine also imported 4.1 billion cubic meters of natural gas but the entire volume came from Russia.
In February, Ukraine imported 2.1 billion cubic meters of gas. Reverse-flow gas supplies from EU countries totaled 1.2 billion cubic meters, including 1.1 billion cubic meters from Slovakia, 100 million cubic meters from Hungary and 60 million cubic meters from Poland. Russia supplied 900 million cubic meters of natural gas over that month.
Ukraine’s annual gas consumption amounts to about 50 billion cubic meters.
