Gas imports down 25% since early September due to Budince interconnection repairs

Ukrainian Imports of natural gas from Europe since the beginning of September 2020 slashed by 25%, down to 79.1 mcm a day (as of September 1, 2020), according to data of Gas TSO of Ukraine LLC (GTSOU).

The main reason for the decline in Ukrainian imports of natural gas was caused by repairs of the Budince interconnection on the Ukrainian-Slovak border, which will last until September 21, 2020 (inclusive). During the repairs imports in this direction will not occur. Compared to September 1, 2019, with 65 mcm imported during the day, on September 1, 2020, Ukrainian natural gas imports were still higher by 22%.

Gas supplies from Slovakia through Velke Kapushany have increased by 26% since the beginning of September 2020, up to 55.5 mcm a day, a record high in history of Ukraine. The entire volume came as of virtual reverse imports of natural gas.

Imports of natural gas through Bereg virtual interconnection point (Hungary) also increased by 18%, up to 19.4 mcm a day as of September 1, 2020. Deliveries of natural gas from Hungary were also carried out as virtual reverse.

Imports from Poland, by contrast, dropped by 12%, down to 4.3 mcm a day as of September 1, 2020, the lowest volume since the beginning of August 2020. Thus, for the first time in the history of Ukraine, the entire volume of imported natural gas came as virtual reverse.

Since the beginning of 2020, as of September 1, 2020, Ukraine imported 12.66 bcm of natural gas from Europe, by 31% more than in the same period of 2019.

As reported earlier by ExPro, Ukraine in August 2020 increased natural gas imports from the EU by 1.6 times, up to 3.36 bcm.
