During the auction there was observed an increased interest in the vehicle loads, as a result of trading the price raised 627 steps, indicating a high level of competition on the market, noted at the Press service.
"I would like to note high level of organization and holding the auction. Only on equal and competitive terms we can operate according to market rules. This contributes to the formation of real market prices for liquefied gas on the domestic market and significantly reduces corruption risks. We are ready to work honestly according to the rules, but the rules should be the same for everyone," said a representative of the company- participant after bidding.
"The management of the "Ukrainian Universal Exchange" welcomed the fact of holding transparent Ukrgazvydobuvannya realization of the resource on the auctions of the largest commodity exchange of Ukraine. This allows one to get additional profit, which can be sent by the company to strengthen energy security of Ukraine," said the Deputy Director of the UUE Serhiy Hladkyi. Transparent auctions for the sale of the resource extracted from the state Ukrgazvudobuvannya should serve as an example for other state-owned companies such as Ukrnafta, - commented the Deputy Director of the UUE Serhiy Hladkyi.
As previously reported, Ukrnafta lost huge amounts of money in shortfall profits at auction of UICE exchange. Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine reported about the initiation of legal proceedings on these facts, but further investigation has not informed the society about the course of events.
