ERU and EBRD signed a two year committed loan agreement for 10 mln Euro to finance gas trading operations related to the usage of Ukrainian gas underground storages. This deal will support ERU in its preparation for the winter season and help to secure reasonable cost financing of additional gas in Ukrainian storages.
"We are proud to be the first private company signing such a deal to finance gas in Ukrainian storages. ERU strongly believes that Ukrainian infrastructure, and storage specifically, plays an important role in securing gas supply in Eastern Europe as well as reducing price spikes not only during the winter season but also while there is planned maintenance on a main non-Ukrainian gas transit routes to Europe. We consider this deal as a first step for wider cooperation with EBRD in energy efficiency, district heating, renewable generation and other areas. " - said Yaroslav Mudriy, Managing Partner of ERU.
