The shipments include supplies to the EU and Moldova as the company did not report separate statistics for the two destinations.

Ukraine is capable of shipping up to 120 Bcm/year of gas to Europe via its pipelines. Russia supplies a quarter of Europe's gas needs.

In 2013, Ukraine reduced Russian natural gas imports by 15%, or by 4.9 Bcm, to about 28 Bcm from 32.9 Bcm in 2012, the company said.

UkrTransGaz also transported about 43.9 Bcm of natural gas to domestic consumers in 2013, down from 48.8 Bcm the previous year.

"In 2013 UkrTransGaz promptly complied with all requests on shipments of natural gas for European and Ukrainian consumers," the company said in a statement.
