Hungary signs gas supply deal with Ukraine

Hungary has signed an agreement with Ukraine to supply a guaranteed capacity of natural gas to Kiev from Jan. 1, Sergiy Makogon, the CEO of Ukraine's gas transmission operator OGTSU, said on Facebook on Wednesday.

OGTSU signed the cooperation agreement that will allow Ukraine to import up to a daily 8 million cubic metres of gas from Hungary with Hungarian transmission system operator FGSZ Foldgazszallito, Makogon said.

The CEO said the most important aspect of the deal was that it gave Ukrainian gas traders access to Croatia’s LNG terminal on the island of Krk and help Ukraine diversify its gas supply sources.
