Naftogaz Trading Gas Supply Company LLC sold 3.6 bcm of gas in January-May 2021, which is significantly higher compared to the total of 125 mcm for the same period last year.
This growth was due to the company’s strategy of developing sales on a competitive basis and increasing the customer base, as well as to higher demand for energy during the heating season.
