Gazprom still pumping natural gas to Europe via Ukraine
Russia's Gazprom is still meeting supply requests, sending natural gas to Europe via Ukraine.
Russia's energy giant Gazprom said it is still meeting supply requests for natural gas from buyers in Europe and that it has provided more than 108 million cubic meters through Ukraine on Sunday.
"Gazprom is supplying Russian gas for transit through Ukraine as usual, based on requests from European consumers. That is 108.4 million cubic meters delivered on April 3," a statement read.
The contract Gazprom has with Ukraine limits the daily amount of gas that can traverse the latter at around 109.6 million cubic meters a day, or 40 billion by the end of 2022.
Russia's Gazprom said Friday it was quitting its business in Germany in light of high tensions over energy between Berlin and Moscow after the latter asked for payments in rubles instead of euros.
The energy firm did not elaborate on its decision to end its participation in Gazprom Germania and all of its assets, which include subsidiaries in several European countries.
Gazprom on Friday announced that payments for deliveries of Russian gas would be made in compliance with the rules of the Russian Federation. Gazprom said it was notifying counterparties about the procedure of paying for Russian gas in rubles.
