Transit of the natural gas from Turkmenistan to Ukraine via the Middle Asian pipeline system was twice cut from June 26 as of the fact that Itera did not pay the debts to the Uzbek and Kazakh gas transporting enterprises because of accumulated debt to the Ukrainian energy producing companies. Nikolay Semenenko, the Press-Secretary of Itera informed Turkmenistan.ru.

The resumption of full-capacity delivery of gas was possible after the meeting of the Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma with the International Group of Companies Itera Igor Makarov, when the Ukrainian leader gave guarantees t o Itera that USD 20 million will be transferred for paying back a part of a USD 50 million debt of energy producing enterprises.

In July the company plans to allocate to Ukraine 3.3 billion cubic meters of gas, that is 0.11 billion cubic meters more than in June.
