Gas injection to Ukrainian UGSs reached a record this year - almost 40 mcm
On July 26, the injection of natural gas into Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities reached the highest level since the beginning of the year – 39.6 mcm per day. This is evidenced by ExPro calculations.
Compared to the previous day, the volume of injection increased by 6% (2 mcm). At the same time, natural gas withdrawal is practically absent.
Since the beginning of the current injection season, about 3 bcm of natural gas has been injected into storage facilities.
As of July 26, almost 11.8 bcm of natural gas were stored in storage facilities (not including the Vergunsky UGS). It is expected that on August 1, gas reserves in storage facilities may reach 12 bcm.
It will be recalled that the Government instructed Naftogaz to ensure that storage facilities are filled to at least 19 bcm before the start of the next heating season.
