The total volume of reverse gas supplies from the EU to Ukraine may reach fifteen billion cubic meters a year, said the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
" Currently, our delegation will travel to the EU, we began the so-called new reverse, volume sufficient to supply the country with gas. Total deliveries of gas to the EU can be fifteen billion cubic meters ", - said Yatseniuk, speaking in the Verkhovna Rada.
According to existing agreements, Ukraine will have the opportunity to receive this year to reverse the EU only 6, 5 billion cubic meters of gas. Large volumes will be possible only if Kiev will be able to establish large-scale reverse through Slovakia. However, Naftogaz has acknowledged that it cannot be done without the consent of the Russian " Gazprom ".
As said by the head of " Naftogaz " Andrey Kobelev on the first day of the week, Ukraine hopes to establish reverse gas via Slovakia since September, maybe a little earlier. Korolev informed about intention of Ukraine to seriously increase reverse gas supplies from Europe with existing 16 million cubic meters of gas per day (about 6 billion cubic meters per year).
