Latest update on functioning of the Naftogaz Group companies as at 19:00, 16 March 2022

Our colleagues from JSC Donetskoblgaz are continuously repairing the damaged infrastructure and are doing their best to keep the homes of the customers warm (although it is no easy work being done under constant shelling from the enemies’ side).

Today, they have replaced some sections of gas pipelines, repaired damage to gas supply systems made earlier (instead of binding, colleagues welded the areas of damage and eliminated damages to gas pipelines).  Also, our experts keep planting "enhanced" bindings on a medium pressure gas pipeline with a diameter of 500 mm. They have managed to restore gas supply to 75 apartments of a high-rise building, damaged by an air strike. Unfortunately, 143 private houses were cut off, because of the shelling.

We continue to produce defence elements for the Armed Forces and Territorial Defence Forces. Since the Russian invasion, all units of JSC Ukrtransgaz have actively supported our defenders. Over this period of time, our colleagues have made 22 obstacles for checkpoints, 932 vehicle barriers with forced stopping force, 46 anti-tank Czech hedgehogs, and 59 potbelly stoves. We keep doing our job!

At that, the UGS facilities are under high security and keep normal operation.

LLC “Gas supply company “Naftogaz Trading” has shrunk the daily natural gas supply to the customers by 5%, to almost 85 mmcm.  This is both due to warm spell and that some regional gas retail companies, most affected by Russian aggression, have suspended the work with the Company. Thus, GSC “Naftogaz Trading” has no connection with LLC Margaz, which provides gas to Mariupol residents.

15 January is the deadline for payment of natural gas for January for DHCs. Despite the difficult situation, almost 850 heat producers, or 65 percent, paid on time. GSC “Naftogaz Trading” is discussing the possibility of settlements with the rest of the consumers in the near future.

All digital services of GSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” are fully accessible.  Over the past 24hrs, the contact centre has handled more than 1,500 calls. We are grateful to almost 37,000 of our customers who have paid their gas bills over the past day. We are grateful to you, as we are able to do our job and provide Ukrainians with heat.

Novoyavorivsk and Novyi Rozdil CHPs are operating as normal. No emergencies have occurred over the day. All consumers have heat and hot water. Branches of Novoyavorivsk and Novyi Rozdil CHPs work stably. Citizens of Novoyavorivsk and Novyi Rozdil and nearby residential areas receive electric power.

JSC Ukrtransnafta and JSC Ukrspectransgaz keep operating as normal under conditions of martial law.

Operation of the Shebelynka Oil Refinery (Kharkiv oblast) has been suspended. It should be recalled that it was suspended on 26 February 2022 due to the threat of shelling.

JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya keeps producing gas at all its facilities, except for those located near the contact line.

OJSC “Kirovohradgaz” is operating as normal.

Press Office of National Joint Stock Company “Naftogaz of Ukraine” will be informing on a regular basis on the state of gas infrastructure in the company’s official accounts in social networks (Facebook, Telegram, Twitter).
