Gazprom will reduce natural gas supplies to Moldova by 56.5 % starting December 1, 2022.
This was stated by state secretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Development Constantin Borosan, deschide.md reports.
The official said that on November 21, an auction was held in Kyiv to reserve the monthly capacity of natural gas transportation in the interconnection points between Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova (Hrebeniki and Oleksiyivka), but no additional transportation capacity was reserved.
“At this moment, Gazprom has reserved only annual guaranteed daily capacity at STG Operator Ukraine for the period October 2022 to September 2023 in the amount of 5.7 million cubic meters per day, of which for Oleksiyivka – 2 mln. and for the Hrebeniki – 4.5 cubic meters per day,” Borosan said.
“At present, the transportation capacities reserved for the annual auction are used. Thus, starting December 1, 2022, the natural gas supplies from Gazprom to Moldova will be reduced by 56.5%, based on the volume of natural gas agreed upon between Moldovagaz and Gazprom for December under the Natural Gas Supply Contract (189 million m³ – for the right bank and 217 million m³ – left bank),” the state secretary added.
