The average price of gas from European suppliers in March exceeded the price of gas from Gazprom 33.9%.
Naftogaz of Ukraine demands from the Russian Gazprom compensation for overpayment of 34% when an emergency purchase of gas in Europe in March. On Monday, March 5, said chief commercial officer of Naftogaz of Ukraine Yuriy Vitrenko on his page on the social network Facebook.
“According to operational data, the average price of gas from European suppliers in March of this year exceeded the price of gas from Gazprom (after its reduction according to the decision of the Stockholm arbitration) 33.9%. All this overpayment will be issued to Gazprom for compensation,” – said Vitrenko.
According to him, now Gazprom must pay compensation for failure to fulfill contract obligations for the supply of gas in March, as he has been officially warned.
Recall, March 1, ended a longstanding dispute between companies in the Stockholm arbitration court, which ordered Gazprom to pay Naftogaz $4.63 billion for failure to supply the agreed volumes of gas for transit. According to the results of two arbitration of disputes between companies on supply and transit of gas, Gazprom has to pay NAC $2.56 billion
Already on March 2, Gazprom announced the termination of contracts with Ukraine for the supply and transit of gas. This caused the introduction of a temporary economical mode of consumption of blue fuel to avoid a crisis situation in the energy sector.
