Russian gas transit via Ukraine remains low – Business & Economy

MOSCOW, February 21. /TASS/. Demand for Russian gas transit through Ukrainian territory remains low, equaling the level of mid-January, according to data provided by Ukraine’s Gas Transmission System (GTS) operator.

Gas transit through Ukraine has been falling since the beginning of the month, standing at around 46.5 million cubic meters per day over the weekend. Nominal demands (nominations) for gas transportation through the territory of Ukraine for Monday total 50.4 million cubic meters.

Consequently, the pumping of Russian gas via Ukraine from February 1 to 20 (about 1.39 billion cubic meters) is about 38% lower than in the same period in 2021 and 37% higher than that of First 20 days of January 2022, according to data provided by Gazprom and GTS Operator of Ukraine.

Direct pumping of gas by Gazprom to Germany via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline is still suspended. The Russian gas producer suspended pumping gas directly to Europe via Yamal-Europe on December 21, 2021, due to lack of demand from European consumers.

Gas flows via Nord Stream are 6.4% lower than in early February, while remaining above the average level in January.

Gazprom said earlier that its gas exports to non-CIS countries fell 35.5 percent year-to-date (from 9.8 billion cubic meters) to 17.9 billion cubic meters. However, its average annual gas exports rose nearly 18% in February from January, according to data from the holding company.
