Over the past
nine months, NJSC Naftogaz of Ukrainy
managed to be in the black for the first time in nearly ten years, Prime
Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk
emphasised at a meeting of the anti-crisis energy staff
on Friday, 27 November.
The activity of Naftogaz, he underlined, was not in the red despite the
fact that the company received up to a UAH 8 billion loss from the sale of gas to
the population, "as households still keep on receiving gas at price under
the social norm that is lower than the market one."
"It has been
achieved due to the proper management and thanks to the head of the company. The
company offset its losses, which it received from the sale of gas to the
population, by implementing gas to industrial consumers and other activities,"
stressed Arseniy Yatsenyuk.
