The volume of natural gas for which Naftogaz of Ukraine has prepaid Gazprom equals approximately 1 billion cubic meters, based on the contract price of Russian gas.

This figure is made up of prepaid gas for January 2015 and unused advances for December 2014. The volume of gas yet to be delivered under the December prepayment is to be calculated at the new market price.

Prepaid gas volumes will be ordered and used by Naftogaz depending on the needs of Ukrainian consumers.
