Ukrainians to get access to cheaper natural gas – PM Groysman

Ukrainians will have access to cheaper natural gas through an increase in domestic gas production and de-monopolization, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said.

He stated this at a briefing on Thursday during his working visit to Poltava region, where he visited several facilities of the Ukrgazvydobuvannia state enterprise, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"In 2020, we have to produce 20 billion cubic meters of Ukrainian gas and buy nothing abroad... Ukraine will be energy independent. We will extract more Ukrainian gas, and Ukrainians will have access to cheaper gas than today," Groysman said.

The prime minister recalled that on November 21, the government decided to form a new supervisory board of Naftogaz and one of its tasks would be de-monopolization of the gas market in Ukraine.

"The new supervisory board consists mostly of professional people in the oil and gas sector, and the task before the supervisory board is the following – de-monopolization of the Ukrainian gas market... De-monopolization will also influence the price of gas inside the country, that is it will be lower," Groysman added.
