Due to the introduction of transit of Russian gas through its territory to Hungary, Ukraine has lost its reverse gas supply for its own needs in this area. Oleksandr Narbut, President of the Kyiv Institute for Energy Research, spoke about this on the air of Radio Donbass.Realii (a project of Radio Svoboda). Let us announce that from October 1, Russia will supply gas to Hungary via Serbia and Austria.
Alexander Narbut appears that technologically resounding for new opportunities is impossible:
– Not on all obverse, against direct, direction of transit I can receive reversible gas. Hungary is one of those countries where the lack of compressor capacity on the Hungarian side respects gas, coming to us from there, if there is no direct flow from our side. Therefore, the flow will be zero, and the Hungarian reverse – and it is now the largest, we will get 20 million cubic meters – we will also have zero. The possibilities of document circulation of large areas of gas from Europe will be on the Slovak device, but there may be some problems. If Nord Stream is not quickly justified, there will be a shortage of gas in the previous direction, if Russia sharply reduces its position throughout Ukraine, as it has done recently: the flow is steady but insignificant. So, probably, we have a chance to spend the winter without special waves this winter, but we can come out with more devastated shelters, – told the expert.
On September 28, gas prices in Europe for the first time in history exceeded 1,000 newcomers per thousand cubic meters. In two days, they reached acquaintances of 1,160 visitors per thousand cubic meters. Analysts claim that this is happening during the rapid transition of gas transit to Europe through the territory of Ukraine, as well as that Gazprom artificially covers its gas storage facilities in the EU. European producers of electricity through road gas began to buy coal, because of which the price of this fuel jumped to 200 profits per ton: the highest level since 2008. All this is happening after Gazprom announces the arrival of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, which can congratulate Ukrainian revenues from gas transit. Currently, the pipeline is opening certification stages, and Gazprom can receive only half of its capacity.
