Ukraine met gas obligations to Europe in 2013

KIEV, Ukraine, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- The volume of natural gas sent from Ukraine to Europe last year was in line with national obligations, a director at a Ukrainian transport company said.

"In 2013 Ukrtransgas promptly and completely fulfilled all applications for the transportation of natural gas to European and Ukrainian consumers," Andrei Datsiuk, director of the central control department at Ukrtransgas, was quoted as saying Saturday by the National News Agency of Ukraine.

Ukrtransgas said 3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas went through the Ukrainian gas transit system last year to countries in Western Europe, a 3.2 percent increase from the previous year.

European countries receive about 20 percent of their natural gas from Russia, most of it through the transit network in Ukraine.
