The calorific value of Russian gas was lower than stated, according to Minsk

Disagreements on the amount of payment between the parties arose in calculating the calorific value of the supplied gas.

The claims of the Russian state concern Gazprom to pay Belarusian consumers $ 165 million of debt have no reason. The Ministry of Energy of Belarus announced this on Friday, May 29.

“The Republic has no debt for imported natural gas. Payments are made by Belarusian gas supplying organizations with Gazprom Transgaz Belarus in accordance with the concluded agreements,” the ministry emphasized.

It is noted that there was disagreement between Belarusian consumers and Gazprom as a supplier regarding the cost of natural gas supplied, taking into account its calorific value.

Previously, Gazprom declare that Belarus owes more than $ 165 million for the delivered resource, and negotiations to continue deliveries in 2021 will continue only after the payment of the debt.
