"The government assures that the Ukrainian energy market remains attractive in the near future and is creating sufficient demand for new gas production and exploration," he said.

According to Shmyhal, production sharing agreements are a tool for leveraging significant investment in the national oil and gas industry. The interdepartmental commission and investors have done a lot of work to develop their projects.

"Significant progress has been made during the last stage. Our common objective is to speed up their signing," he said.

According to the official, the government is interested and focused not only on concluding production sharing agreements but their successful implementation as well.

"The signing of these agreements will be an example of improving the investment climate in Ukraine and will be another important step towards achieving energy independence of the state," he said.

Following the meeting, the prime minister commissioned the Ministry of Energy, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources and the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture to intensify the work on concluding relevant agreements.
