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.
