Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) and Energy Resources of Ukraine will supply natural gas to Ukrtransgaz, a gas transmission network and storage facilities operator.
“ERU continues solidifying and growing its leading position on Ukrainian gas market. As a private company in 2017 ERU had been keeping largest volumes of gas in Ukrainian storages and repeats this result in 2018 which allows our company to be successful on very competitive domestic market. Strategic cooperation with PGNiG whose portfolio includes LNG in combination with political risk insurance provided by OPIC creates positive experience and stable basement for development and implementation of new ambitious projects in Ukrainian energy sector,” commented Yaroslav Mudriy, CEO of ERU Trading.
“The contract is a result of successful partnership between PGNiG and ERU, which is founded on very competitive business terms offered by PGNiG, in line with market rates. Since 2016, we have been consistently building our brand on the Ukrainian energy market,” said Maciej Woźniak, Vice-President for Trade, PGNiG – Polish Oil and Gas Company.“Being the leader of the Polish gas market, PGNiG has the resources and experience that make the company a stable and reliable gas supplier. We already supply our customers with gas from diverse sources and geographies, including LNG from Qatar, USA or Norway, gas from other European markets, and gas produced by PGNiG in Poland. I am sure that once the Baltic Pipe is brought on stream to transmit gas from Norway to Poland, our position as a reliable and competitive supplier in the region will strengthen markedly,” he added.
