RWE STARTS UKRAINE
RWE AG, via its trading and gas midstream arm RWE Supply & Trading, is the first European supplier to commence gas deliveries to the Ukraine in 2014. Today, RWE re-starts deliveries to the state-owned company "Naftogaz of Ukraine" with gas from its pan-European portfolio.
The gas flows via Poland to Ukraine. These supplies are governed by the existing 5 year framework agreement between Naftogaz and RWE Supply & Trading signed in May 2012, which foresees deliveries of up to 10 billion cubic meter (bcm) of natural gas per year subject to individually agreed contracts.
In 2013, RWE Supply & Trading has already delivered about 1 bcm to Naftogaz. RWE's deliveries to the Ukraine are based on European wholesale price levels including delivery costs to the Ukraine. RWE believes that further significant volumes could be delivered to Ukraine if various transport restrictions at the Slovakian/Ukrainian border are politically and technically resolved within the next weeks or months.
