Ukraine interested in joint gas and power projects with Romania, Minister says

On Tuesday (22 August), Ukrainian Energy Minister German Galushchenko held an online meeting with his Romanian counterpart Sebastian Burduja to discuss bilateral energy ties, emphasising Ukraine’s interest in joint projects in the gas and electricity sectors.

“Ukraine has the largest gas storage facilities in Europe and offers international partners to use their natural gas storage facilities on mutually beneficial terms. We state that European traders have already started pumping their gas into our gas transmission systems, today such volumes amount to about 600 million cubic metres,” said Minister Galushchenko.

German Galushchenko emphasised Ukraine’s interest in developing cooperation in natural gas transportation via the Trans-Balkan Gas Corridor.

Both sides also discussed the implementation of agreements on the restoration of the interstate overhead line between the 750 kilowatts (kV) substation “South Ukrainian NPP” and the 400 kV substation “Isakcha.” 

This project is of “great importance” for expanding the capacity of cross-border networks, which will also increase the reliability of power supply to consumers in southern Ukraine and remove restrictions on generation capacity from renewables in these regions.
