Vice PM Kistion: Ukraine has explored gas reserves containing 600 bcm

The gas reserves containing 600 billion cubic meters have been explored to date in Ukraine, according to different studies.

Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Kistion said this at the Cabinet’s meeting, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Development of the gas sector is the main tool for achieving the energy independence. Own gas production is the only strategic resource of Ukraine. Our state, according to various studies, has the second or third largest natural gas deposits in Europe. Today, the explored reserves contain about 600 billion cubic meters," Kistion said.

He commented that the gas demand of Europe, including Ukraine, would remain large at least until 2045.
