Tariff for Russian gas transit through Ukraine doubled

The ink on the Russian gas transit agreement, signed on December 20, did not have time to dry policy and officials have already begun calculating Kiev’s estimated earnings.

So, Verkhovna Rada deputy Andrei Gerus announced two billion dollars in 2020, which Ukraine will be able to get for gas transit.

As follows from the copyright material for the publication "Экономическая true ”, the Minister of Energy of Ukraine had a little more appetite than the deputy:

The estimated income with which Ukraine withdrew from this meeting is more than $ 3 billion in arbitration, plus approximately $ 3 billion for transit for a year for five years.

According to him, the Russian company, despite the decrease in transit volumes under the new contract to 65 billion cubic meters in 2020 and 40 billion cubic meters in 2021-2024, will pay Ukraine as much as in 2018-2019 - about 2,9 billion dollars a year.

This becomes possible only in one case - if the average tariff is $ 64 per thousand cubic meters, which is twice the tariff under the old contract and three times the cost of pumping through the Nord Stream pipeline.

A number of experts note that if Kiev’s information is confirmed, this will completely change the characterization of the new agreement that Russian officials give - it will turn from a balanced contract into Gazprom’s deflection to avoid even greater losses from the termination of transit.

However, the expert community agrees that it is too early to assess the package deal on gas, since the full picture is still not clear.

    Here it is - capitalism in all its glory, Gazprom is afraid of losses, and for the sake of profit is ready to sponsor fascist Ukraine! Spit on the authority of Russia, the main thing is money.

    Gazprom executives are so busy building personal billions that they don’t have time for the affairs of the campaign and the country. Profuched everything that is possible. This is the main result of the personnel policy of GDP: irremovability for devotion to the complete collapse of the assigned business. By the way, we also see in law enforcement agencies: there are many billionaires, but there is no order at all.

      Ships for the construction of SP-2 - there is!

      Special Purpose Vessels Seahorse и Rockpiper will carry out underwater technical work to backfill the underwater section of the pipeline, necessary for the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project, follows from the order of the Russian government on the control of foreign ships in the Baltic Sea.
      The control over the vessels will be carried out until December 31, 2020. According to the Marinetraffic service, the Seahorse is currently located near the port of Rotterdam, and Rockpiper is located in the Gulf of Finland.

    - About China in general a special conversation ... -Something ... somehow ... our commentators are more and more silent about the "Power of Siberia" ... - Is everything okay there ... and okay ??? - I'd like to know...

      What, in the end, will Ukraine receive after signing a contract for the transportation of gas under the conditions of the above Protocol:

      1).The average annual income from the transit of Russian gas will be about $ 1,3 billion (it will decrease by 2,3 times);
      2). The annual total payments to the budget from gas transit will amount to about - 0,35 billion dollars (they will decrease by 4 times);
      3). Income from transit will be 1% of Ukraine’s GDP (it will decrease by almost 3 times);
      4). The tariff for gas transportation through the gas transmission system of Ukraine for consumers of Ukraine will be 346,2 UAH per thousand cubic meters. m (increase by 1,8 times);
      5). The tariff for entering the gas transmission system for domestic producers will be 472,3 (increase by 4 times);
      6).For a reliable and guaranteed gas supply for all regions of Ukraine, it will be necessary to carry out appropriate restructuring of the gas transportation system of Ukraine, which will require significant capital investments;
      7).A significant part of the main gas pipelines will be inactive in the work of the gas transportation system of Ukraine, which in turn will require significant costs for the conservation of such gas pipelines or their dismantling;
      8).the customer of transit services to the operator of the Ukrainian GTS instead of the Russian Gazprom will be Naftogaz;
      9).The absence of a direct contract for gas transit through the territory of Ukraine between the GTS operator and Gazprom, and, as a result, the inability to defend controversial issues on gas transit in international arbitration.

      In fact, now Naftogaz has become a satellite of Gazprom, and all claims regarding transit should be made not to Gazprom, but to Naftogaz.

      They consider chickens in the fall ... And in the neck of these unfortunate managers it would have been a long time .... Pikes netu- crucians sleep.
  4. Until the claims are canceled, no 3 lards, no transit!

      When did Gazprom pay and repent? Well, at least one example is possible?
      As far as I know, Gazprom always won against the Baltic states, the Poles, and the Ukrainians.
      If we take the sum of all Gazprom’s wins from the Ukrainians, then they will block this loss at 2,6 - 2,9 lard.
      And if you look at how Gazprom sanded Ukrainians throughout the entire time, then this is generally song laughing .
      1. So, do you have to maintain a good tradition?

    Russian foreign policy is weak. The Russian Federation can only intercede for Jews with the words of its president. They removed from OI, one overpowered - the first train to Taurida was launched. In general, 2019 is a failure for the Kremlin.

    58-60 dollars prohibitively high tariff. Ukraine cannot appoint a tariff higher than the European average on its own whim. Gazprom has the right to demand a lower rate. The annual maintenance of UGTS costs about $ 1 billion, that is, the net revenues to the Ukrainian budget minus this amount will be completely small.

    In Ukraine, the laws of mathematics obey political expediency and twice two can easily equal nine.

    For now, the FSB will howl, and the pipe will reach South China (of course, only to damage the Russian budget), and we will grow gas carriers (in the reptile, Mars sideways).
