The amount of the purchase will be 1 million cubic meters.
The state-owned enterprises of Moldova and Poland, Energocom and PGNiG, signed a contract under which the Polish side commits to supply 1 million cubic meters of gas. This volume will arrive in the country on October 26.
According to representatives of the Moldovan government, the delivery is a test, since in the history of the country there have been no purchases not from & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221 ;.
In addition, the message from the authorities indicates their intention to & # 8220; balancing the low pressure in the natural gas supply system '.
At what price the blue fuel will be purchased is not indicated.
It is known that the market price of fuel is about $ 1,000 per 1,000 cubic meters, Russia supplies them for 790, although in 2020 Moldova paid about $ 150 for the same volume.
Recall that the decision to find a new supplier was adopted after the announcement of an energy crisis in the country on October 22.
According to RBC, with the standard of 3 billion cubic meters per year (1.8 billion is consumed by Transnistria), the contract with & # 8220; Gazprom & # 8221; expires in Chisinau in November.
The Russian side, namely “Gazprom”, under the new agreement offers Moldova a price 25% lower than the market price. The condition is to pay the debt & # 8211; $ 709 million.
The Chisinau official does not agree to such conditions and insists on an audit, which would establish how such debt arose.
According to the Prime Minister of Moldova Andrei Spinu, the countries have agreed to carry out joint control.
As for the contract with Poland, the fuel will be delivered to Moldova via checkpoints on the border with Ukraine. It is known that the tender for the supply was won by Warsaw in cooperation with ERU (Ukrainian-American business group).
In addition, in the middle of the crisis in Moldova, Ukraine has pledged to supply its neighbor 700 million cubic meters of fuel and an additional 16 million as condition of return, reports RIA Novosti.
