Ukraine has said it will deliver 30 million cubic meters of gas, instead of 38 million cubic meters, from Russia to Hungary, though transit volume has not fallen yet, Csaba Molnár, Hungary's minister in charge of energy affairs, said.
If Ukraine's deliveries drop by 8 million cubic meters on Monday, gas from commercial reserves can compensate for the shortfall, Molnár said. Hungary's gas consumption is expected to be 70 million – 74 million cubic meters on Monday, up from 64 million cubic meters on Sunday, he added.
Molnár said he had informed the prime minister of the situation.
A meeting of a gas supply crisis committee has been called for Monday afternoon. If necessary, appropriate measures will be taken. (MTI – Econews)
