Naftogaz elaborates on Ukraine's further steps if Nord Stream-2 not implemented

Kiev, February 16 - Neftegaz.RU. CEO of Ukrainian Naftogaz Andrey Kobolyev says Ukraine will be able to raise the issue of transferring points of gas transmission to European buyers from the country's western to eastern border during talks on a new gas transit contract after 2024, provided that Russia's Nord Stream-2 project fails to be implemented.

He made the comment at the the three-day All-Ukrainian Forum «Ukraine 30».

A.Kobolyev said:
  • I believe we've made significant progress in the fight against pipeline Nord Stream-2
  • If this project is not implemented, it will be possible to return to discussions with the Russian side on the transfer of these points after the completion of the current [gas] transit contract, which will happen in 2024;
  • I'm somewhat skeptical about the possibility of moving gas supply points to Ukraine's eastern border because of the tough position of Russia's gas monopoly Gazprom, which is doing utmost to prevent this
Earlier, Ukrainian Energy Minister Yuriy Vitrenko stressed the need to put pressure on Gazprom and the Russian leadership to lift restrictions on gas exports to Ukraine from Central Asia and Russian suppliers that are independent of Gazprom, as well as to move gas transmission points from Ukraine's western to eastern border.

Today, Y. Vitrenko said:
  • such initiatives are blocked by Russia's leadership;
  • if the initiatives are implemented, demand for the Ukrainian gas transmission system will increase, while gas prices will slump.
