Warsaw, October 26 - Neftegaz.RU. Polish PGNiG in cooperation with the US-Ukrainian ERU, has won a tender for the sale of gas to Moldova.
The tender was announced as a matter of urgency.

Last week, Moldova’s parliament has declared a a 30-day state of emergency in the energy sector to allow the government to take rapid measures to bring natural gas from sources other than Gazprom.
Moldova relied on Gazprom for all its gas supplies.

Pawel Majewski, President of the Management Board of PGNiG, commented:
  • The PGNiG Group is deeply committed to the principle of energy solidarity, which we perceive as a prerequisite for the proper functioning of the gas market in the EU and the neighbouring countries
  • Guided by this principle we decided to participate in the tender whose aim was to urgently supply gas to Moldova which experienced problems with deliveries from Russia
1 million m3 of natural gas will reach Moldova today under a deal on a one-time delivery.
This is the 1st delivery in the history of Moldova from alternative sources.
The gas will be delivered through the collection point at the Moldovan-Ukrainian border

Yaroslav Mudryy, Managing Partner at ERU Group noted:
  • We believe that the current difficulties will encourage Moldova to diversify its sources of gas supply and further integrate with the EU and implement the EU gas regulations
Moldova's contract with Gazprom expired at the end of September and the government asked for an extension, but did not accept Gazprom's price offer of $79 per 1,000 m3 of gas.

A source familiar with the talks previously told Reuters that Moldova had asked Gazprom to halve its price offer.
A 2nd source said Gazprom had offered a cut of 25%.

Moldova´s Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Spinu said on October 25 that Chisinau will continue talks with Gazprom this week and will ask for a «fair price».
