Press Release of Janos Zsuga, the director of the FGSZ Ltd.
The confirmed quantity of 30 Mm3/day was delivered from Ukraine yesterday.
During the night the FGSZ Natural Gas Transmission Ltd. was informed by the Austrian dispatcher charges that the natural gas transmission to Western Europe from Ukraine via Slovakia has been restricted. As a result the amount of western import from Austria to Hungary has been decreased since 5 o'clock in the morning. At present (7.15) the transmission from Ukraine to Hungary is unchanged (30 Mm3/day). The restricted amount has been compensated for from the underground gas storages. The expected consumption for today is 68-70 Mm3.
