Ukraine seeks to reverse gas flows from Germany and Slovakia

German energy utility RWE has restarted gas deliveries to Ukraine, under an existing 5-year framework agreement signed with Ukrainian gas company Naftogaz in May 2012. The agreement foresees deliveries of up to 10 bcm/year of natural gas, subject to individually agreed contracts.

In 2013, RWE Supply & Trading delivered about 1 bcm/year to Naftogaz. 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.
