Official: Russian gas transit across Ukraine record low in 30 yrs '20

KIEV, Jan 13 (PRIME) -- Russian gas transit across Ukraine fell by 38% in 2020 to 55.8 billion cubic meters (bcm), a 30-year record low, head of the operator of the country's gas system Sergei Makogon said in an article for the Ekonomicheskaya Pravda newspaper on Wednesday.

"On the one hand, Gazprom paid for 65 bcm of capacity because Ukraine managed to force it to include a pump or pay norm in the contract. On the other hand, this is a record low in the last 30 years," Makogon said.

He said that the capacity of the system was loaded by less than 30%. The official added that Ukraine can lose 15 bcm of transit more due to the launch of TurkStream's second line.
