Background

Between 2007 and 2011 Moldova was supplied with natural gas under the Contract dated December 29, 2006 that defined gas volumes and stipulated a gradual increase in prices to bring them to Europe's average level by 2011.

Gazprom and Moldovagaz annually entered into contracts on gas transmission via Moldova.

Starting from 2012, the terms and conditions of the contracts signed in 2011 were extended.

Moldovagaz is a joint Russian-Moldavian company set up by Gazprom, the Moldavian Government and the Industry Ministry of Transnistria.
