MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. Gazprom continues supplying Russian gas for transit to Europe through Ukrainian territory as per normal, Spokesman Sergey Kupriyanov told reporters.
“Gazprom supplies Russian gas for transit through Ukrainian territory as per normal, in accordance with requests of European consumers – 109.5 mln cubic meters as of March 10,” he said.
This volume equals deliveries under long-term booking for gas transit via Ukraine (around 109.5 mln cubic meters per day).
As of Wednesday, March 9, 109.5 mln cubic meters were requested as well.
Overall, Europe boosted withdrawal of gas from storage facilities over the past days. It also increased gas purchases from Russia amid the growth of spot prices due to a drop in temperature, the lack of wind and the escalation of the situation in Ukraine.
