Ukraine`s underground gas stocks exceed 12 bcm


Stocks of natural gas in Ukraine`s underground storage facilities grew by 3.6%, or 429 million cubic meters (mcm), from 11.826 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas on August 20 to 12.255 bcm of gas on August 27, according to Ukrtransgaz, operator of Ukraine`s gas transport system.

The amount of gas pumped daily into the underground facilities, as of August 27, was about 62.2 mcm.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine stopped transferring gas from its underground facilities due to the end of the heating season, and since April 7 gas stocks have been replenished.

In the first half of July 2016, Ukraine imported about 0.5 mcm of gas per day from Slovakia and about 0.4 mcm from Hungary. In mid-July, gas purchases from Slovakia and Hungary grew considerably. Further, Ukraine resumed gas imports from Poland.
