At the beginning of July, gas imports to Ukraine amount to 15.8 million cubic meters (mcm) per day, according to Serhiy Makogon, CEO of Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU) LLC.
"Since the beginning of July, gas imports to Ukraine have increased significantly. At present, they amount to 15.8 million [cubic meters] per day." Makogon wrote on his Facebook page.
According to him, 91% of imported gas comes from Hungary, 7% from Slovakia, 2% from Poland.
Makogon added that additional revenues would increase the injection of gas into underground storage facilities to ensure the passage of the heating season.
As reported, gas reserves in underground gas storage facilities of JSC Ukrtransgaz as of the end of June amounted to 16 billion cubic meters (bcm), which is 5% higher than at the beginning of the gas injection season.
By the beginning of the heating season, Ukraine must accumulate at least 17 bcm of gas in underground gas storage facilities.
