The scheme above shows the daily flows of transit gas at import and export
terminals of Ukraine in millions of cubic meters. The first number is the daily

the number below is the difference between the two (source:
the press-release of Jan-5-2009, to supply Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey
and Macedonia via the Balkan pipeline (Orlovka gas metering station), Naftogaz
