“Naftogaz” suggested “Gazprom” to negotiate new tariffs

Naftogaz earlier said it raised the tariff for transit of Russian gas, but specific figures were not called. The rate increase due to the adoption in Ukraine of new rules of pricing on transit services.

MOSCOW, 31 Dec. “Naftogaz” suggested “Gazprom” to negotiate in connection with the adoption in Ukraine of new rules of pricing for services on gas transportation, said the press service of the Ukrainian company.

Director of business development of the company “Naftogaz of Ukraine” Yuriy Vitrenko on his page in Facebook said on Wednesday that Ukraine has raised the tariff rate on the transit of Russian gas through its territory, but did not give specific figures.

“The solution CREATED (the National Commission, carrying out state regulation in the spheres of energy and communal services) is binding after its official publication. At the same time “Naftogaz”, as a responsible partner, suggested “Gazprom” to negotiate on this issue”, — stated in the message.

The national Commission, carrying out state regulation in spheres of power and utilities has previously set rates for the transportation of natural gas through cross border pipelines to points of entry and exit. Naftogaz is currently reviewing new rules for the pricing of gas transportation, set CREATED, the report says.

The transit rate up to this point was 2.7 dollars for transportation of thousand cubic meters per 100 kilometers. The Ukrainian side has stated that she wants to raise that bet to $ 5. Also in Kiev has repeatedly stated that the agreement between Ukraine and Russia on gas transit to Europe would be renewed after 2019, as the alternatives to the Ukrainian route no. For its part, Gazprom is working on the construction of the offshore pipelines to bypass Ukraine.
