Gazprom continues supplying gas on schedule for transit via Ukraine, Saturday demand consistently booked

MOSCOW. March 5 (Interfax) - Pumping via the Ukrainian gas-transit corridor on Saturday remains at the same high level, corresponding to the volumes of the long-term contract of 40 billion cubic meters per year, or 109 million cubic meters per day.

European buyers have increased bookings for supplies of gas from Gazprom following the rise in prices owing to the sanctions being imposed against Russia. The current price of gas at the Dutch TTF gas hub has risen to $2,150 per thousand cubic meters.

"Gazprom is supplying Russian gas for transit through the territory of Ukraine in the regular mode, in accordance with the bookings of European consumers at 109.5 million cubic meters on March 5," Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov told reporters.

According to the data of the Gas Transmission System (GTS) Operator of Ukraine, nomination for March 5 is 109.4 million cubic meters, and bookings for March 4 totaled 109.5 million cubic meters.
