Ukraine significantly reduces gas transportation from EU - Gas TSO.

Gas Transmission System Operator (TSO) of Ukraine LLC transported 0.55 billion cubic meters of gas from Europe in January-April 2021, which is seven times less than in the same period last year, according to the company’s press service.

Ukraine imported 0.07 billion cubic meters of gas from Slovakia, 0.48 billion cubic meters from Hungary, and almost no gas imports were carried out from Poland, Romania and Moldova. At the same time, 0.49 billion cubic meters of gas, or 88%, was imported though the virtual reverse (backhaul).

Over the reporting period, Gas TSO also transported 0.08 billion cubic meters to underground gas storage facilities (JSC Ukrtransgaz). This is only 6% of the amounted recorded a year ago, when suppliers from the beginning of the season actively pumped gas into underground storage facilities until the winter heating season.

“During the same period in 2020, at the request of clients, Gas TSO of Ukraine transported 1.3 billion cubic meters to the underground storage facilities for further storage, this year - only 80 million cubic meters were delivered. This is partly due to high prices at European gas hubs. There has been a record low level of gas imports to Ukraine in recent months,” said Commercial Director of LLC Gas TSO of Ukraine Yevhen Todorov.

Gas inflows in the "customs warehouse" regime in January-April 2021 amounted to 0.08 billion cubic meters (of which 12% transported in the ‘short haul’ mode). In January-April 2020, customers imported 1.22 billion cubic meters of gas, of which 27% transported in the ‘short haul’ mode.

As reported, “the customs warehouse” regime provides for storage of gas in Ukrainian UGS facilities for up to 1,095 days without paying customs duties; “short haul" is a special service that enables the company’s customers to book gas transportation services at a favorable tariff rate.
