More than 10 bcm of natural gas accumulated in Ukrainian underground storage facilities

More than 10 billion cubic meters has already been accumulated in Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities, and these volumes are growing.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to Shmyhal, preparations for a very challenging heating season are underway. Thus, the Ukrainian government considers all possible scenarios.

“We are preparing for all possible scenarios. At a meeting of the Government, we endorsed a document stipulating that, at the beginning of the heating season in October, our underground gas storage facilities must contain enough natural gas reserves to ensure an uninterrupted heating season under any circumstances. These are the guarantees that our country will have heat supply, and we will be able to pass through the next winter season smoothly,” Shmyhal noted.

A reminder that Ukraine is preparing to pass through a new heating season without any Russian energy resources.

As of April 12, 2022, Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities contained 9 billion cubic meters of natural gas. A total of 1 million tonnes of coal was left in warehouses.
