Gas deliveries from Hungary to Ukraine slow
Gas deliveries from Hungary to Ukraine has dropped dramatically — from approximately 3 million cubic meters to about 5,000 cubic meters, in the past three days, public data on the website of Natural Gas Transmission Closed Company Limited (FGSZ Zrt) show.
Answering the query of Budapest Business Journal, FGSZ spokesperson Edina Lakatos sent the following statement to the BBJ:
“FGSZ Zrt gas deliveries from Hungary to Ukraine will take place in accordance with the contract of system usage, and is dependent on the varying demands of system users while also taking into consideration the physical load limits of the pipeline. Deliveries to Ukraine will be carried in the DN 800 diameter pipeline, which is physically separated from the Brotherhood pipeline. The slowing of gas deliveries — as was reported on our website — was due to a drop in user demand, and as such, our company cannot comment on the reason for the slowdown. If demand increases, our company will resume gas deliveries taking into consideration the physical load limits of the pipeline.”
