Hungarian gas transmission system operator FGSZ Ltd. has announced that it is ready to resume reverse gas supplies to Ukraine from January 1, 2015.
"FGSZ Ltd. informs the users of the network that we are ready to begin transmission of natural gas to Ukraine on January 1, 2015," Ukrainian newspaper Evropeiska Pravda reported, with reference to the company’s press service.
As noted, gas supplies will be carried out in accordance with the conditions set before the termination of reverse gas supplies on September 25, 2014.
Earlier, Hungarian Minister of national development Miklos Sestak announced that Hungary would not able to resume reverse gas supplies to Ukraine until it filled its own storages.
