KIEV, January 19. /TASS/. The cost of gas transportation across Ukraine has risen by nearly 50%, Ukraine’s Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Vladimir Demchishin said on Tuesday.

"There was a transit tariff before that, and now there will simply be a transportation tariff of about $4.5 per 100 km. This is somewhat 50% higher, even more," the minister said.

The rate was $2.7 for transit of 1,000 cubic meters of gas for 100 km. Ukraine’s oil and gas company Naftogaz expects to discuss tariffs on gas transit from Russia by end of January in connection with the ship-or-pay principle introduced in Ukraine since this year, CEO of the company Andrei Kobolev said earlier on Tuesday. If negotiations are fruitless, Kiev "reserves the right to go to court," he added.

Gas reserves in Ukraine’s storages amount to 12.2 bln cubic meters

According to the minister, gas reserves in Ukraine’s storages amount to 12.2 bln cubic meters.

"12.2 bln cubic meters [are in gas storages] to date," the minister said. "There is no extreme situation," he added. At the same time, "consumption is much larger," Demchishin said.

Ukraine continues buying gas from Europe at $190 per 1,000 cubic meters, the minister said. "Some technical issues may arise later on. No complications so far," he added.
