Russian natural gas giant Gazprom has confirmed its plans to supply 55 billion cubic meters of gas to Ukraine in 2008, Ukrainian oil and gas company Naftogaz Ukrainy reported Tuesday following talks with Gazprom, according to Prime-Tass.

At present, Gazprom Export, a subsidiary of Gazprom, supplies Central Asian gas to Gazprom affiliate RosUkrEnergo, which sells the gas to Naftogaz Ukrainy.

In March Gazprom and Naftogaz Ukrainy concluded an agreement to resolve a lengthy gas dispute, which saw Gazprom briefly slash gas supplies to Ukraine by 50% due to unpaid Ukrainian debt.
