Third time unlucky: why Gazprom wants no new gas war

Extracts from an article by Dmitry Zhdannikov published on 7 March 2014 by Reuters

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Over the past decade, Gazprom, 51-percent controlled by the state, has twice cut its supplies to Ukraine over pricing disputes with Kiev. That action also cut supplies to the EU, which gets 50 percent of Russian deliveries via Ukraine. Gazprom also helped the Kremlin nationalise Royal Dutch Shell’s Sakhalin gas project as Putin re-established Russia’s grip on the energy sector after predecessor Boris Yeltsin let it slip with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Despite setbacks at Sakhalin, Shell remains Gazprom’s partner in the project, calling it a very successful investment. read more

Ukraine Signs Drilling Deal With Shell for Shale Gas

By STANLEY REED: Published: January 24, 2013

LONDON — Royal Dutch Shell, the largest oil company in Europe, has signed a contract to drill for natural gas in Ukraine.

The company’s chief executive, Peter Voser, and the Ukrainian president, Viktor F. Yanukovich, signed a production agreement Thursday for the potentially prolific Yuzivska gas field in the eastern part of the country. The signing took place at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Winning an active Shell drilling program is a potential boon for Ukraine, which is thought to be one of the best bets in Europe for so-called shale gas and tight gas. Such gas, found in porous underground shale rock, is usually withdrawn through the process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. The technique is controversial, because of the potential environmental effects, but Ukraine is more politically receptive to it than some other countries. read more

Jan. 18, 2013, 7:37 a.m. EST

KYIV, Ukraine, January 18, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — The Donetsk and Kharkiv regional administrations voted in favor of the production sharing agreement with the oil and gas company Royal Dutch Shell.

According to the agreement, Shell will hand over 31-60 percent of the extracted gas to the Ukrainian state.
