Department of Information and Communication of the Secretariat of the CMU"Our main task is to get through the winter time. And if we face a choice between warming the country and boosting production of the chemical plants, I can clearly declare our decision is to warm the country," stressed the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk at a Government meeting on Wednesday, October 8.

In order to pass over the winter the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has adopted a decision to introduce limits and shortening in consumption of the natural gas, including by the chemical industries, the PM explained.

The Head of Government informed he had had talks with the chief of Odesa port plant on this issue, Odesa port plant had a contract with our colleagues from Hungary. Presently, due to various reasons, Hungary has suspended shipment of natural gas to the territory of Ukraine, also to meet the needs of the plant.

We believe our western partners will resume gas supplies for the chemical facilities, including the port plant," Arseniy Yatsenyuk said and added the delegation of Odessa port plant is staying in Hungary.

In order to prevent technological disruption of the production process Naftogaz will support Odesa port plant, in case it receives compensation for gas volumes we have supplied to Odesa port plant and other chemical enterprises, PM has explained.

To support business entities that deal with production of mineral fertilizers and chemical plants as well, according to Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Naftogaz Ukrayiny grants permission to the companies to conclude deals on purchase of natural gas. Naftogaz will ensure transportation to any entrepreneur, including chemical companies.

The Government has adopted a decision to give an opportunity for everyone to purchase gas, we shall transport it to afford enterprises to operate. If you have promised to transport it, just do it, the PM urged.
