Today, Ukraine does not have any possibility to supply gas from Norway. An independent expert on energy issues Volodymyr Saprykin shared this opinion with UNN.
It is possible for Ukraine to receive up to 1 billion cubic meters of gas from Europe, including Norway, without a transformation of the whole Ukrainian gas transport system in a reverse way. If we are talking about big amounts - it is necessary to build the pipeline. This point of view was delivered by a leading expert of energy programs of Razumkov Center - Sergiy Dyachenko.
The Ukrainian gas transport system could be assessed at about USD 30 billion, an independent expert, former spokesman for Naftogaz of Ukraine Valentyn Zemliansky, has said.
Gasoline and diesel fuel prices in Ukraine are simply too high, they provide 30% extra income for traders, however, drivers have to switch over to gas oftener, setting up dangerous engines that use natural gas.
Next year the cost of A-95 petrol may rise to 12.5 USD per liter. This opinion was expressed by a director of consulting group A-95 Sergey Kuyun at the press conference today.
