Deputy head of PGNiG Maciej Wozniak called the agreement the next step on the way toward strengthening Poland’s position within the Ukrainian gas market.

"This agreement means that we have free access to gas pipelines and can use them when we need it," Radio Poland quotes Wozniak as saying.

Until recently, PGNiG sold gas on the Polish-Ukrainian border. Now the company can order a gas transportation service in Ukraine.

Maciej Wozniak reminded that in 2016, the Polish concern sold more than 400 million cubic meters of gas to Ukraine. According to Wozniak, the supply of blue fuel to Ukraine will reach 800 million cubic meters by the end of 2017.

The agreement is valid until the end of this year, with the possibility of automatic renewal.
