The construction of an additional gas interconnection pipeline between Ukraine and Poland will provide around 80 million cubic meters of gas per day that will allow buying all the gas volume required in the EU, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed at a meeting of the anti-crisis energy center on Friday, October 31.

The Prime Minister has underlined that he supports the proposal made by NJSC Naftogaz Ukrainy and the Ministry of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine regarding the construction of this pipeline.

The Prime Minister has stressed that an additional gas pipeline will allow buying the additional gas volume up to 80 million cubic meters a day: "This actually means that we will be able to buy all the necessary natural gas in the member states of the European Union."

Arseniy Yatsenyuk has emphasized the need to urgently prepare a construction project between Ukraine and Poland and to hold talks with the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on the financing of the project.

"I set the term that we will commission this gas pipeline in 2016. This is realistic," the Prime Minister added.
