Gazprom continuing to supply gas via Ukraine as usual, Monday
MOSCOW. March 7 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian natural gas transit corridor remains highly loaded on Monday in accordance with long-term contract volumes (40 billion cubic meters a year, or 109 million cubic meters a day).
European buyers have increased their requests for purchasing natural gas from Gazprom in the wake of a price hike prompted by sanctions against Russia. At the moment, the gas price at the TTF gas hub has reached $2,150 per 1,000 cubic meters.
"Gazprom is shipping Russian gas for transit via Ukrainian territory in standard mode, in line with requests by European consumers, at the level of 109.6 million cubic meters as of March 7," Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said.
According to information provided by the operator of the Ukrainian gas transport system, the nomination for March 7 is 109.5 million cubic meters, the same as it was for March 6.
