Russia tightens energy grip amid 'reverse flow' gas trade

 While the EU prepares to apply a new round of sanctions against Russian energy companies, Poland, Slovakia and Austria have announced delivery shortfalls in their Russian gas imports being piped through Ukraine.

Ukraine started reverse flow of gas imports from Europe through Slovakia, Poland, Austria and Hungary, after Russia halted gas exports to Ukraine in June.

Ukraine launches reverse-flow gas deliveries from Slovakia (Naftogaz)

KIEV, September 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine has launched reverse-flow gas deliveries from Slovakia, the head of Ukraine’s national energy company Naftogaz, Andriy Kobolev, posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday. “A lot is in store yet, but this is a major step,” he said.

ITAR-TASS reported earlier that on April 28, 2014 Ukraine’s Ukrtransgaz and Slovakian gas operator Eustream signed a memorandum on mutual understanding to ensure reverse-flow gas deliveries to Ukraine through the Vojany-Uzhgorod pipeline. The pipeline’s capacity is no more than 27 million cubic meters of gas a day or 10 billion cubic meters a year.

Ukraine starts test gas imports from Slovakia

Ukraine has begun test imports of gas from Slovakia via an upgraded pipeline, the head of Ukrainian state-owned gas company Naftogaz said on Aug. 16, as the country tries to secure greater energy independence from Russia.

Last year, Russia supplied about half of the gas Ukraine used, but Gazprom cut supplies on June 16 in a row over pricing and in the wake of Moscow’s annexation of Crimea.

Russia has come under heavy Western sanctions over its move on Crimea and accusations it is supporting separatists in east Ukraine with troops and funds, claims it denies.
