Moldova starts to deliver gas for storage in Ukraine – Makogon


JSC Moldovagaz is planning to pump about 100 million cubic meters of gas into Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities for storage.

CEO of LLC Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) Sergiy Makogon wrote about this on Facebook.

“The first deliveries have already begun. According to Moldovagaz, it is planned to pump about 100 million cubic meters of gas during October-November,” Makogon said.

He reminded that the issue of creating a gas reserve for Moldova in Ukraine began to be actively discussed in the summer of 2019, when there was uncertainty with the continuation of transit through Ukraine.

“Such a reserve guarantees the energy security of Moldova and reduces dependence on a single gas supplier,” Makogon said.

As Ukrinform reported, in December 2019, LLC Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine, LLC Moldovatransgaz and JSC Moldovagaz signed an interconnection agreement on interaction in accordance with European rules from January 1, 2020.This step allowed transporting gas in line with European rules in both directions between Ukraine and Moldova through the points of Oleksiivka, Hrebenyky, Causeni, Ananyiv, and Lymanske. It fully completed the unblocking of the Trans-Balkan gas corridor and allowed consumers in Moldova to receive gas from the Ukrainian gas transmission system from January 1, 2020.

  • I was hoping to see an increase in gas production in Ukraine, which would eventually mean that it could export gas. And, things really looked good for the country … under Poroshenko. But, since the clown took office, gas production has been going down.
    Another blotch upon his term.
