The Cabinet of Ministers charged to the Main thing control - to auditing management to carry out an inspection of the gas supplying enterprises (mountains - and regional gases). Quality of the natural gas supplied to consumers becomes a subject of audit, the newspaper "Business" writes.
An inspection will be carried out together with Gospotrebstandart. "It is expected that soon CREWE will send us the missive, then there will be the general order", - reported the deputy head Gospotrebstandart Daniil Oliynyk. Approximately, audit will begin from the beginning of a heating season, that is, in the middle of October.
As the head of CREWE Nikolay Sivulsky reported, need for check is caused by possible abuses of the gas supplying enterprises. According to him, regional gases add in natural gas which is delivered to the population, air.
The gas saved thus, allegedly, is transferred to fixed assets of the separate enterprises. Then regional gases redeem volumes of natural gas, doing good revenue to owners of firms - intermediaries.
Thus, according to Daniila Oliynyk, gas caloric content decreases. "We have many complaints from consumers on quality of fuel", - she claims.
Earlier, Sivulsky tells, it was difficult to prove abuses of regional gases as CREWE has to inform the enterprises on planned checks in 10 days. "During this time, naturally, all air extort", - the head of department speaks.
On the basis of an order of the government, and also taking into account addresses of citizens of department will be able to carry out audit, without waiting for the specified term. At the same time in regional gases deny any abuses with supply of gas. "To pump air in pipes is it is technically impossible. In - the first, it there would be an explosive mix. In - the second, compressor stations are on the main gas pipelines, that is we couldn't make it" in any way, - the chief engineer of "Krymgaz" Zoya Gorobets speaks.
The Zamgeneralny director of "Luganskgaz" Alexander Piven adduces the same arguments. "We now buy gas only at "Gaza of Ukraine" so all questions on quality to them", - are told by him.
Interlocutors of the edition in the gas market, wished to remain unnamed, regard the become frequent checks of regional gases by various state agencies as pressure upon the companies. The purpose - return to the state of gas-distributing networks (now they are at regional gases in rent).
We will remind, the Cabinet of Ministers intends to transfer pipelines to management of specially created NAK Naftogaz Ukrainy subsidiary - "Naftogazmerezhi". "Daughter" already created the four first branch in Vinnytsia, Dnepropetrovsk, Zakarpatye andNikolaevareas.
However the Minister of Fuel and Energy Yury Prodan reported that in the course of transfer of networks to "daughter" of NAKA there were difficulties. "Contracts (concerning transfer of gas pipelines) were already sent them, but they don't agree with conditions. They at all don't want to give network NAKU", - the minister claims.
At the same time in regional gases confirm obtaining documents, but refer to need of their detailed consideration. For this reason active work on transfer of networks, according to gas workers, yet didn't begin.
In total in Ukraine work 43 regional gas-distributing companies.
According to the open sources, the greatest number of regional gases in Ukraine is controlled by Dmitry Firtash. So, it possesses equity stakes of Dnepropetrovskgaz, Zhitomirgaz,Nikolayevgaz, Rovnogaz, Ternopolgaz, Zaporozhgaz and Hmelnitskgaz.
