    Ukraine to enter August with 11.8 bcm of gas in UGS facilities - Naftogaz CEO

    July 29, 2022 - Interfax Russia & CIS Business and Financial Newswire


      MOSCOW. July 28 (Interfax) - Ukraine should enter August with natural gas reserves of around 11.8 billion cubic meters in its underground gas storage (UGS) facilities, NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine CEO Yuriy Vitrenko said.

      "We currently have 11.7 bcm of gas in the UGS facilities, and we pump an average of 34-35 million cubic meters per day, thus we should reach around 11.8 bcm of gas by August 1," Vitrenko told the media.

      In addition to pumping gas from domestic production, the company is also importing and transferring gas purchased on European Union markets into the UGS facilities, Vitrenko said. The gas enters the country via Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland.

      As previously reported, Ukraine had 11.3 bcm of natural gas in the UGS facilities as of mid-July. Naftogaz has been tasked with accumulating 19 bcm of gas in the UGS facilities by the beginning of the 2022/2023 heating season.

      Vitrenko also believes that 15 bcm of gas reserves will be sufficient for the country, as domestic consumption has declined significantly.
