Concerning the state of Ukrainian Gas Transmission system

NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” declares that its gas transmission system (GTS) is capable to ensure trouble-free and accident-free transit of the Russian gas to the European consumers according to terms and conditions of long-term contracts.

“Ukrtransgaz”, a subsidiary company of NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine”, annually carries out inspection of pipelines and gas pumping units on the gas transmission system objects. The dynamics of the last years shows that about 7,000 km of pipelines are inspected annually within the framework of complex corrosive research. In addition, about 2,000 km of gas pipelines are subject to in-line inspection. At the same time all necessary repair work is carried out as well. The proper technical state of domestic GTS is confirmed by its trouble-free and reliable work during the whole year.

The reconstruction of technical equipment is carried out on all objects of the gas transmission system of Ukraine in order to bring it to the European standards. 69 modern highly effective gas pumping units of domestic manufacture have been placed into operation for the last few years. Capital investments make 1.2-1.3 billion UAH annually.

NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” and OJSC “Gazprom” perform similar routine maintenance concerning repair and support in proper condition of the main gas pipelines. At the same time, it should be noted that Ukraine has never breached contracts on gas supply to the European consumers.
