Transit of Russian gas is gradually leaving the Ukrainian gas transportation system
Transit of Russian gas is gradually leaving the Ukrainian gas transmission system. Serhiy Makogon, the head of the Ukrainian GTS Operator, writes about this on his Facebook page.
Earlier, the company's press service reported that gas transit to Europe through Ukraine in February fell by a quarter compared to January. It amounted to only 2.91 billion cubic meters.
“Gradually, Gazprom is reducing the flow through Ukraine. After the launch of the Turkish Stream … transit to Turkey, Greece and Bulgaria was completely transferred from Ukraine to new gas pipelines “, – noted Makogon.
” And since April 1, gas supplies to Romania are fully provided by Bulgaria via the Turkish Stream. Currently, in the southern direction through Ukraine, transit is carried out only for consumers of Moldova, “added the head of the Ukrainian GTS Operator.
In addition, he said, when the continuation of the Turkish Stream through Bulgaria and Serbia will be launched (Balkan Stream ), then “Gazprom” will also transfer gas supplies to Hungary there.
How much will Ukrainian transit decrease after this
“For Ukraine, this means an additional loss of 10-12 billion cubic meters of transit annually. Therefore, it is very important to prevent the completion of the construction of Nord Stream 2. Gas transit through Ukraine is not only a significant income, it is an important element of the energy and military security of Ukraine, ”concluded Makogon.
However, the head of the“ Ukrainian Gas Transmission Operator ”hopes for a halt in construction. In an extreme case, the completion of the Nord Stream 2 project can be delayed a little longer. Recently Nord Stream 2 AG postponed the completion of the pipeline to September 2021.
Pipelayer Akademik Chersky will lay the first string of Nord Stream 2 (Line A). At the same time, the Fortuna pipelayer will complete the second string of the gas pipeline (Line B). : ///
