Ukraine begins gas injection season at underground storage facilities

Naftogaz’s gas storage operator, Ukrtransgaz has begun a new season of gas injection in its underground storage facilities, the Ukrainian state-owned energy group announced on Monday (17 April).

During last year’s withdrawal season, 5.572 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas was withdrawn from the country’s underground storage facilities.

“Compared to previous years, this year’s withdrawal season was shorter. This is due to favourable weather conditions and a relatively warm winter. I am very grateful to the Ukrtransgaz team and all Naftogaz Group employees for their well-coordinated work last winter. It helped us resist and provide heat to Ukrainians,” said Oleksiy Chernyshov, CEO of the Naftogaz Group.

During the 2022-2023 heating season, despite Russia’s full-scale invasion, Ukrainian underground storage facilities demonstrated “smooth operation,” Naftogaz said.

“We keep operating as normal. Our team is ready to face any challenges. In fact, we have already started preparations for the next winter,” said Roman Maliutin, Interim Director General of Ukrtransgaz.
