Ukraine produced 9.3 bcm of natural gas in the 1H2022
During the 1H2022, Ukraine produced more than 9.3 bcm of natural gas, 4.5% less than in the same period last year. ExPro calculations evidence this. The data may be refined.
Production is at its lowest level in the last decade, which is primarily due to the war in Ukraine. Although the hostilities did not affect the main fields, the fighting took place in the immediate vicinity. This applies primarily to Kharkiv, and to a lesser extent to Poltava, Sumy, and Chernihiv regions.
At the same time, already in June, gas production managed to stabilize after falling in previous months. Thus, according to preliminary calculations by ExPro, during June, Ukraine produced about 1.5 bcm of natural gas, which is 7% less than in June last year.
Currently, Ukrainian companies consistently produce about 50 mcm of natural gas per day.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, noted that the Government expects gas production in 2022 at the level of 16-19 bcm.
