Oleksiy Chernyshov: The russian attack on Naftogaz's UGS facility will not affect gas storage services

During an enemy attack in Western Ukraine this morning, one of Ukrtransgaz's underground gas storage facilities' ground infrastructure was hit, resulting in damaged technological equipment. This will not affect the services provided by Ukraine's UGS facilities; there are no critical consequences.

Naftogaz Group CEO Oleksiy Chernyshov emphasized this during his visit to the impact site on March 24.

Service nominations, including storage and capacity bookings, are being fulfilled as planned," reported Oleksiy Chernyshov.

Currently, efforts to localize and eliminate the consequences are ongoing according to the Emergency Response Plan.

The situation will not critically impact the UGS operations since the gas is stored deep underground. The damaged surface infrastructure will need repairs, however we have sufficient backup capacities in place to mitigate any immediate impacts," added Naftogaz Group CEO.
