The request for the transit of gas from Russia to Europe via Ukraine remains at 39.4 million cubic meters. daily

MOSCOW, March 18 (Reuters) – The order to pump Russian gas to Europe via Ukraine on March 18 is 39.4 million cubic meters per day through the zero-volume gas metering station Suja by GIS Sokhranivka, according to data from Ukraine’s gas transmission operator.

The day before, the demand was also 42.4 million cubic meters. daily.

In mid-January, the pumping of gas through Ukraine fell by 40 percent. up to approx. 24 million cubic meters per day, while since May last year it has been at the level of approx. 40-43 million cubic meters. daily. In the third decade of February, Ukraine’s gas supplies returned to roughly the previous year’s level. The maximum volume of the transit contract is 109 million cubic meters. daily.

Since May 11, Ukraine has stopped receiving transit gas through the Sohranivka station, citing force majeure circumstances and proposing to transfer the entire transit volume to Suja.

Pumping along the main route of Russian gas supplies to Europe – the Nord Stream gas pipeline – was completely stopped on September 2.

The transit of Russian gas through Poland to Germany via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, which carried up to 15% of Gazprom’s export supplies to Europe and Turkey, was interrupted after Russian retaliatory sanctions against the Polish owner of the pipeline. (Moscow office)
