Gas supplies to the EU through Ukraine will cost three to four times cheaper than “Nord stream-2”, told in “Naftogaz”. The company noted that the route via Ukraine is the shortest route for transporting Russian gas to Eastern and Central Europe.
Also in Kiev pointed out that “Naftogaz” has already quite a long time serves the region and owns the necessary infrastructure to deliver blue fuel to the ultimate consumer. The EU ostensibly does not have the required capacity to supply gas through the North of Germany, where it ends “Nord stream”, and attempt to transition to this route will lead to failure in the gas supply.
“Given the arbitration process in Stockholm, we are concerned about the intentions of “Gazprom” to spend their limited resources on economically unjustified projects”, – added in “Naftogaz”.
Earlier head “Gazprom” Alexey Miller said that the company began capacity optimization in the Central region. It involves the elimination of by 2020 of four thousand kilometers of trunk pipelines.
Miller said that the transportation of Russian gas via Nord stream-2 will cost 20 percent less than through the territory of Ukraine. After the start of a new pipeline through the territory of a neighboring country will export 10-15 billion cubic meters of fuel.Related posts:
