Pubic joint-stock company Ukrtransgaz would announce a new tender to reconstruct compressor stations after revising the top priority directions for modernization of the Ukrainian gas transport system, Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said.
“All procedures (the tender to reconstruct Ananiev, Zadniprovska and Pivdennobuhska compressor stations) were held, but Naftogaz made another decision in the issue – this is its sovereign right. Now as I have been informed they are studying viability. There are problems with southern route (due to risks of construction of Turkish Stream), it is likely that they would revise the needs for modernizing the gas transport system and would announce a new tender”, he said.
Naftogaz Ukrainy did not approve of the purchase of equipment and works by public joint-stock company Ukrtransgaz from public joint-stock company Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association (Sumy NPO) to reconstruct Ananiev, Zadniprovska and Pivdennobuhska compressor stations
Sumy NPO is protesting against the revocation of the orders. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
