Naftogaz of Ukraine signed a Memorandum with the Dutch company Gasunie and the French GRTgaz on cooperation in the sphere of use of capacities of the Ukrainian gas transportation system. This was at a conference on the development of commodity exchange market said the chief commercial Director of the holding Yury Vitrenko, writes UNIAN.
“Working with potential partners in the management of the GTS is already activated. We signed a Memorandum of understanding with two leading European operators, with the Dutch Gasunie and the French GRTgaz” he said.
Dutch Gasunie is one of the best European companies in terms of the organization of its work, and its participation was created the most liquid gas market in Europe, said Vitrenko.
Also, Vitrenko explained the task that the company has put in front of investment Bank Rothschild.
“In the future there will be a contest (for choosing the European partner involved in the management of the Ukrainian GTS – ed.). The conditions of competition must be approved by the Cabinet. Final decision rests with the Parliament. Our job is just to hire an investment banker. Bankers work directly with us and the government, soon they will start working with the Parliament. They, as an independent organization, should ensure transparency of the process, including to eliminate all speculation about the conflict between “Naftogaz” and government”, – he said.
