Naftogaz buys gas from Europe for less than $200 per 1,000 cubic meters

The national gas company Naftogaz Ukrainy is buying gas from Europe for less than $200 per 1,000 cubic meters, Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Minister, Volodymyr Demchyshyn, told reporters after the government meeting on Thursday.

«Somewhat less than $170 [per 1,000 cubic meters] is the hub price, and a bit less than $200, including transportation,» he said.

The minister said that he was informed about the purchase price with a slight delay, so it might not be the 'latest' price.
