Ukraine resumes re-export of natural gas

Ukraine has resumed the re-export of natural gas from its underground storage facilities, the gas transmission operator Ukrtransgaz informed.

The export of previously imported natural gas was renewed after the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine made the relevant amendments. Re-export of gas from Ukraine was suspended on 3 March, 2022 due to hostilities on the territory.

“We welcome the decision to resume natural gas re-exports from Ukraine. This shows that our state and, in particular, the Storage System Operator of Ukraine will continue to be a reliable partner”, Sergii Pereloma, acting General Director of Ukrtransgaz noted.

“Resumption of re-export operations is an important signal for our foreign customers, who now operate in 27 countries. We hope that in the new season of gas injection, they will consider the Ukrainian gas storage facilities as a site for natural gas storage”, he underlined.

The changes apply to gas that will be imported into the territory of Ukraine from 3 April, 2022 for further storage in underground gas storage facilities in the customs warehouse mode, including transportation at a special short-haul tariff.

Gas imported into Ukraine before April 3, 2022, is still subject to a ban on re-export but can be customs cleared and sold in the country.
