Ukraine Energy Company expands its gas supply from the EU. Thus, in December 2015, in addition to the traditional gas supplies through pipelines in Slovakia, Ukraine Energy made its first deliveries of imported natural gas to Ukraine via the pipeline system in Poland to implement the resource for the large Ukrainian industrial enterprises in the domestic market.
“Ukraine Energy expands its gas supplies from EU, which is a real step towards diversification of sources and directions of gas supply to Ukraine. As a result, we are increasing the reliability of gas supply, especially for our businesses, which in general will increase the volume and ensure uninterrupted gas supplies from the EU“, – says Oleg Vityk, CEO of Effective Investments Company, whose subsidiary is Ukraine Energy Company.
Previously, Ukraine Energy has imported gas from European hubs via Slovakia’s pipeline system. In January 2016 the company plans to import up to 20 million cubic meters of gas, depending on market conditions.
