Novatek offers to supply LNG to Gazprom to cover any Ukraine transit issues – Ifax
Russian gas producer Novatek is prepared to supply Gazprom with liquefied natural gas to honour its contracts this winter in the event of Ukraine transit issues, Interfax news agency cited Novatek’s CEO as saying on Tuesday.
Gazprom, the main supplier of natural gas to Europe, halted gas transit via Ukraine twice since 2006 at the height of winter, in rows over gas prices and transit. More than one third of Russia’s gas exports to the European Union cross Ukraine, providing Kiev with valuable income.
