A mysterious midnight explosion in a western Kyiv suburb knocked out the main pipeline that carries Russian gas across Ukraine to the EU. Repairs are to be completed today as officials seek to minimize the event. “Gas supplies to consumers are organized through other pipelines,” Ukraine’s Gas Transportation System Operator, assured after Tuesday’s explosion. “This situation in no way affects the transit of gas to the EU.” New York-based S&P Global Platts had a more dire view, telling its audience of energy professionals: “A major explosion near Kyiv has rocked the massive Kyiv-Western Ukraine-1 natural gas pipeline.”
