Запасы газа в украинских ПХГ сократились до 13 миллиардов кубометров

The volume of gas in underground storages of Ukraine as of January 10, decreased to 13,004 billion cubic meters.

This is evidenced by the operational data of “Ukrtransgaz” on Saturday, January 12.

For the past day, gas in underground storage facilities of Ukraine’s gas was re-injected. However, storages were selected nearly 86 million cubic meters of gas.

Thus in these it is specified that in Ukraine for the day, there were only of 5.86 million cubic meters of gas from Slovakia – 2.5 million cubic meters, from Hungary 2.1 million cubic meters, and from Poland – 1.2 million cubic meters of its own gas production at 58.4 million cubic meters of gas.

In General, the Ukrainian UGS filled for 42% with a total active capacity of about 31 billion cubic meters.

Earlier it became known that Ukraine has used almost a quarter of the gas reserves in underground storages to 4 billion cubic meters. On the eve of the heating season in underground storage facilities pumped a record 17.1 billion cubic meters of gas.

We will remind, at the end of the 2018 year, Ukraine reduced natural gas imports by 24.6% (to 3.5 billion cubic meters) compared with the 2017 year – on-year to 10.5 billion cubic meters.

In addition, over the past year, Ukraine reduced the transit of natural gas through its GTS 7.1% – 6 billion 677,8 million cubic meters compared with the 2017 year. The total volume of gas transit totaled 86.8 billion cubic meters.
