Transit of Russian gas through Ukraine decreased by more than five times


The transit of natural gas from the Russian Federation to Europe through the territory of Ukraine decreased by 5,3 times compared with the average pumping volume in December. Such data was provided by the Ukrainian GTS Operator company.


If the volume of gas pumped in December averaged 261 million cubic meters per day, then on January 1 this figure was at around 49,3 million cubic meters, and on January 2 - 38,8 million. At the same time, the Ukrainian GTS Operator claims that all transit applications received from Gazprom to deliver gas to EU countries and Moldova are fully implemented.

At the moment, an agreement is signed between the Russian company Gazprom and the Ukrainian operator, signed by the parties in Vienna on December 31, 2019. According to the agreement, in 2020, 65 billion cubic meters of natural gas will be passed through the gas transmission system of Ukraine. In the next four years, Russia will be obliged to pump 40 billion cubic meters of gas through the Ukrainian gas transmission system annually.

In addition, Gazprom, as you know, agreed to pay $ 2,9 billion to Ukraine by arbitration in Stockholm, while Ukraine refuses further claims and will not file new lawsuits.

        Somehow, it was painfully bold that the volumes of gas transit were recorded in the contract. For five years, the need for it in Europe may change, but the contract will still have to be pumped. repeat

            Someone very skillfully played the topic of gas transit and the new joint venture gas pipeline.
            It is very likely that these are our "partners" Americans.
            Maybe they bought Gazprom shares.

            And if you can explain why you need to know who sold the package to? As far as I understand, this is a huge amount of money and it should not be in the public domain, it never happens, big money likes silence ...
            The price tag was at a discount somewhere between 30 and 40 rubles. From the price of that moment, well, I’m telling you that I heard it myself (not 100%).
            And what conclusions can be drawn from this .. conclusions can be made different, as you like, from the discharge of the company, to the involvement of a foreign investor, to push interests. What conclusions do you need?

          Not certainly in that way. In the pumping agreement, the condition "pump or pay" is recorded. In other words, you can pump less, but you still have to pay for the minimum pumping amount specified in the contract.
          In general, what is this article about? What kind of id .. is it designed for? The fact that on the first day of the New Year they pumped gas five times less than the average in December, when the pumping volumes were maximum? At the end of the year, they will still pump at least the volume that is recorded in the contract.

            Yes, but the majority of readers do not know this, and therefore make a topic for them out of nothing.
            In Russia, the cost of gas transit for consumers is determined by the forecast annual plan.
            It doesn’t matter how much you consume in a particular month, the main thing is to fit into the gas volume plan for the year.

          You don’t have to download, you have to pay for what you didn’t pump. They pay for a certain amount, if you do not download it, then compensate with money.
          Download or pay. We used to say: take it or pay, now Ukraine tells us: download or pay. In principle, this is normal, no matter how I wish them defeat in this confrontation.

            Download or pay, as well as take or pay - there is nothing wrong with that, but only to us this rule was “edited” by the most “fair” court in the world, having reduced volumes in the contract by ten times. This is not normal.

              What's so crazy. This does not mean that Gazprom must necessarily pump 10 times less. If demand increases, you can pump more. After all, no one has limited the upper limit.

                I’m talking about the previous contract between Gazprom and Naftogaz. There was a rule to take or pay 50 billion m3. The court reduced this requirement for Naftogaz and gave them about $ 40 billion.

                If in Europe really strongly If the demand for our gas increases, then countries such as Germany may finally give a damn about future US sanctions and revise agreements under which we have the right to “fill pipes” only by 50% thanks to the European Court. Well, the interests of Ukraine will be "to the bulb." His shirt is somehow closer to his body, even in Europe.

            The gas distribution system is arranged a little differently, the gas supplier can only guarantee that it will pump certain volumes through a specific pipe from the volumes that the consumer declares.
            That is, we are talking about the fact that, in principle, it would be possible to pump less through Ukraine through other routes, but someone insistently asks for Ukrainian partners.

            Sergey, in the article you did not indicate two more important points. First: in the event that the pumping volume exceeds 65 billion this year and 40 billion in the next 4 years, the cost of pumping for this volume will be much higher than the pumping cost specified in the contract. The second point: during the past year, underground gas storages in Europe were almost completely filled with gas in case transit stopped through Ukraine. Therefore, now Gazprom is forced to temporarily reduce transit to Europe so as not to drop the price of gas due to an oversupply. This is precisely the main reason for the temporary decrease in transit. This is a very important point that needed to be pointed out.

          Everything can be measured .. but so far, according to the report of the European Commission on gas consumption in the EU in the 3rd quarter of 2019, it increased by 7% compared to the same period last year, amounting to 84 billion cubic meters. m, with only 25 billion cubic meters of them. m is covered by domestic gas production. In addition to the EU - December 20, Switzerland - it was stopped by the Mullenberg NPP (May 21, 2017 at a referendum - 58,2% for a gradual abandonment of the NPP), so this is not the last.

          PS- And yet, yes, since the contract has been signed, it will have to be downloaded if only some force majeure is not drawn.

          EU gas consumption is constantly growing. “Own” gas is produced in the EU too little and the likelihood that the volume of gas produced in the EU will increase markedly is also small.

            Yes, you can do it yourself even by indirect signs. I recall that for example, in 2016, 82 yards were pumped through Ukraine. And Naftogaz reported that it incurs losses. everything is. see for yourself. There are enough analysts on this subject. no one hides financial statements. the transit revenue for their reports in 2016 was $ 1.75 billion, but it’s just transit revenue. just one of the points of their activity. but not their net profit. even if it is considered so primitive, it will now officially become half as much. That's just the cost that will not fall as well)

I do not know. I think they want to stay in the transit chain by any means.

                        I know that they are different. it’s just the cost of servicing it is included in profitability. if transit revenues fall then either expenses should fall as well or I don’t know what should happen so that the pipe remains profitable. Well, as an example, one of the forecasts of costs for 18 years
                        According to Mott MacDonald, the cost of modernizing the GTS for the transit of 30 billion cubic meters per year should be $ 2,7 billion.

I’m not talking about modernization right now which only the lazy did not talk about. what income? just by analyzing the statements of specialists over the past 10 years who claimed that only with a minimum of 80 yards, the profitable gas pipeline does not go into everything that was written above, this contract is strange to the point of absurdity. We agreed on a critical minimum and at the same time closed our own paths for lawsuits. This is some new word in business. .

GTS is not just a pipe, it is a system. which must be maintained and at my own expense I note and expensive. this is planning for years in which costs will only increase. and they agree to a contract in which transit profits fall by half. and this despite the fact that Naftogaz only reports losses. where the pancake in this is at least something from logic or tricks?) it looks more like a circus.

    I'll throw it on the fan, so to speak:

    The minimum wage in Ukraine is higher than in Russia

    From January 1, 2020, the minimum wage in Ukraine is 4723 hryvnias, which is in dollar terms higher than the minimum wage in Russia. About this in "Facebook" wrote the ex-deputy chairman of the state administration of Sevastopol Dmitry Baziv.

    Starting from January 1, the minimum wage in Ukraine was increased by 13,2% to UAH 4723. At the rate of the NBU as of January 3, it is 199,4 dollars.

    In Russia, the minimum wage is 12130 rubles. At the rate of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation as of January 3, it is 195,9 dollars.

    According to Baziva, this happened for the first time.

    In addition, Gazprom, as you know, agreed to pay $ 2,9 billion to Ukraine by arbitration in Stockholm, while Ukraine refuses further claims and will not file new lawsuits.

    When this agreement, our Minister Novak, called it “mutually beneficial,” I was “shocked.” “He suggested Putin to fire everyone!” Now, having understood, I realized that I was mistaken.
    It turned out, not an extension of the agreement between Russia and Ukraine, a trump ace for the United States. This is an oil painting for Europe - "Russia has shown that it is not a reliable supplier of gas for the EU." Therefore, the most reliable option for you is liquefied gas from the USA.
    And we still do not have a denouement in the South of Europe from the Turkish Stream,
    and SP -2 did not fit into the startup program. So, everything is explainable and understandable. The US was not able to completely disrupt our plans to launch SP-2, but only shifted them to the right. yes

      In any case, we must look at the economic component. And Gazprom’s maneuvers are still unprofitable. He is not allowed to pump more than 15-20 billion cubic meters through new branches, but they are designed for 50-60, that is, they still pop into the Ukraine plus costs for the construction of "flows".

    In principle, as an option, now give small volumes of 60 billion cubic meters, forcing Ukrainians to financially torment themselves with the current repair, and towards the end of the year give pressure to full capacity and the guarantee of pipe breaks is quite high. Thus remove the GTS from the market.

    I can only guess. The contract for pumping gas through the Ukrainian gas transportation system was extended under V. Zelensky. Some Russian leaders are building “some kind of plans” on V. Zelensky. V. Zelensky will be elected for the SECOND term, with the continuation of "a certain policy of Ukraine" the contract will be extended ... In the case of a sharp roll of V. Zelensky to NATO or "Bandera", after V. Zelensky choosing someone from the Maidan (for example, P. Poroshenko again) contract for "objective reasons" is not extended.

      The contract was not renewed, but entered into another
      Although Gazprom tried to extend, but failed
      And what other options do you think were? SP2 is not built and no one can name a clear date for the end of construction
      And gas delivery to Europe hangs at Gazprom, gas is sold to customers only at the border of Ukraine with Europe
