Gazprom has booked no additional gas export capacity at Slovakia-Ukraine border for June

(Reuters) - Russia’s Gazprom has not booked additional gas transit capacity for exports to Europe via Velke Kapusany on the Slovakia-Ukraine border for June, auction results showed, although it already has some capacity booked under an existing deal.

In total, 70.4 MMcmper day of capacity was on offer at the auction.

Under its existing supply contract, Gazprom automatically has gas transit capacity booked, which means gas will continue to flow in June. However, the company can book additional capacity if it needs it, an industry source said.

Gazprom also has not booked gas transit capacity for exports via the Yamal-Europe pipeline for June, results of another auction showed.
