Hungarian gas transmission system operator (TSO) FGSZ on Wednesday said it reached an agreement with the Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) that allows the offering of firm capacity in the direction of Ukraine for Q1 2022, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The gas will be offered "on a pilot basis", FGSZ said.
The first auction for the firm capacities, for the gas day of January 1, 2022, will take place on December 31, 2021.
Daily and within-day capacities will be offered for the period between January 1 and March 31, 2022, while for the gas months of February and March of the 2021/2022 gas year, monthly capacities will also be available. The maximum value of firm capacity is 3,532,015 kWh/h.
"FGSZ and our Ukrainian partner are working together towards the extension of the three-month pilot period," FGSZ said.
Under a new long-term gas contract Hungary recently signed, the country is getting all of its gas from Russia through pipelines that run through Serbia and Austria. Earlier, the gas was delivered from the pipeline that passes through Ukraine.
