          “Independence from Russian gas” is Lithuania dorogochinskaya “reform” of gas transit needs neither the EU nor Russia

          Kiev again requires the renegotiation of the contract for gas transit. However, this time after its expiration. We are talking about the transfer point where the gas begins to be considered European, not Russian. However, there are many reasons because of which Brussels and Moscow hardly will be delighted with this approach.

          President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko wants Europe to 2019 – when the contract for the transit of Russian gas – has to buy gas on the Eastern border of Ukraine. And not in the West as it is now.

          So, by the time you need to achieve a “revolutionary change” in the organization of transit. The point of delivery of gas with Gazprom should be on the Russian-Ukrainian border (now the European-Ukrainian). Ukraine needs to provide transit services is not Russia, and the European Union, said Poroshenko.

          It required technically? Now the Europeans signing contracts for the supply of Russian gas with Gazprom. When you transfer the point of reception and delivery of gas to Europeans will have instead of Gazprom to sign transit contract with Ukraine.

          Strictly speaking, Kiev is not the first time expresses a similar idea. Initially, however, Ukraine formulate the proposal differently. “Ukraine was not talking about the transfer point of reception-delivery of Russian gas with Ukrainian-European on the Russian-Ukrainian border. And Ukraine is claimed to be a reseller of Russian gas. Of course, Russia is not satisfied”, – says CEO of the national energy security Fund Konstantin Simonov.

          It turned out that Russia should bear the main investment costs for the production of gas, and Ukraine, without investing a penny, receives Russian fuel and a premium resells it to Europe.

          Scheme, I must say, is not new. It is already actively used by the European Union towards Ukraine. The EU is not a producer but a net importer of gas. And the gas that Kyiv buys a reversal of the EU, is of Russian origin, which the Europeans are at a premium resell Ukraine. Under the loans, which gives the dual benefit of European intermediaries.

          But what could be the EU’s reaction to such a proposal Poroshenko?

          “The transfer of the point of delivery of fuel means that Gazprom sells gas to the Europeans on the border of Russia and Ukraine. This means that all risks of transit, Europe will have to resolve directly with Ukraine, not with Gazprom,” – says Konstantin Simonov.

          If you recall the gas crisis of 2008-2009, when Ukraine was stealing from the transit pipes Russian gas, Gazprom turned off the faucet. When Europe laid claim not Ukraine, namely Gazprom, because it was signed contracts for the supply of gas to the EU. The transfer of the point of delivery of fuel disclaims liability of Gazprom for transportation of gas through Ukrainian territory.

          Thus, Ukraine will have leverage over the EU – at least political, in the best case, it will force Europe to pay for transit more than it currently pays Russia.

          But it is unlikely that Brussels does not understand such effects. EU policy towards Ukraine is only at first glance looks like the selfless help, but it is always worth the benefit of Brussels. This also applies to the Association of Ukraine with the EU and visa-free travel, and fuel supplies.

          Not less important question – whether Russia would agree to the scheme proposed by Poroshenko? It is only at first glance looks attractive for Gazprom. Indeed, in the case of the revision of the transit contract will have to change all the agreements on gas supply entered into with the customers of Gazprom in the EU. And besides, it will be a blow to the legal position of Moscow in the light of the proceedings in Stockholm regarding the current transit agreement.

          However, in 2019, Gazprom may agree. “The situation on the Russian side is already changing. Laid 250 km of the “Turkish stream,” the process and “Northern stream – 2”.

          When the construction of these pipes will be completed, what will become of the Ukrainian transit and how much will remain?”

          – says Simonov.

          When the time comes to sign a new contract with Ukraine, its transit may be reduced four times – from the current 80 billion cubic meters a year to 15-25 billion in this scenario, Russia may agree to a condition of the transfer of the point of delivery of fuel. Just because 15-25 billion cubic meters of the total volume of gas supply in Europe 160 billion do not have much value. In addition, if Ukraine and Brussels over the transit will begin to arise conflicts, “Turkish stream and Nord stream – 2” will show how correct was Russia’s policy on the construction of direct pipelines to the EU.

          “My prediction: the Europeans in this story breaks will not be. Be responsible and lead negotiations with Kiev on the cost and price difficult and costly. Much easier to get gas on the border of Ukraine and the EU to monitor the conflict between Moscow and Kiev at a distance,” concludes the Director of the NESF.
