Kiev Again Rejects Russia’s Gas Discount Compromise Offer (Ukraine Energy Minister)

KIEV, August 29 (RIA Novosti) – Ukraine still refuses to negotiate Russia’s proposed discount of $100 per 1,000 billion cubic meters of gas, Ukrainian Energy Minister Yuriy Prodan said Friday.

“We were again suggested the price of $385 [per 1,000 billion cubic meters] with a $100 discount because of export duty cancellation. The Russian side thinks that the price of $485 is fair. We think that this price is discriminatory,” he said.

Prodan also dismissed as “baseless” Russia’s concerns that Ukraine will tap Europe-bound transit gas from its pipeline network amid expected gas shortages in winter.

Naftogaz sends proposals to Gazprom on revising gas price. - A fair market-based price should be $268.1 per 1,000 cm

The Ukrainian national energy company Naftogaz Ukrainy has forwarded a pre-arbitration note to Gazprom, proposing its terms to settle disagreements regarding the 2009 gas supply contract through negotiations, Naftogaz reported on Thursday. The Ukrainian company proposed revising several key provisions of the contract, the principal one being the price at which Ukraine is buying gas from Russia.

"The matter involves both the price for gas offered to Ukraine starting April 1 this year and the price that Naftogaz Ukrainy has had to pay in the past. The latter automatically calls into question the size of the debt for gas consumed in the past periods, the settlement of which Gazprom is currently demanding," it said.
