    Can Ukraine secure enough gas for the winter? A scenario analysis. September update

    • Whether Ukraine will be able to get over the winter depends on gas consumption and amount of reverse flows
    • Demand has to be at least 20% below 2013 values and some imports from Slovakia are crucial
    • Otherwise, Ukraine will have to re-start imports from Russia in the second half of January 2015 in order to avoid a short-fall at the end of the winter
    • An interruption in gas transits would reduce the ability and willingness of the western neighbours to provide reverse flows and is thus not in the interest of Ukraine
