Starting from 1 March 2019, the Ukrainian gas market has switched to a daily balancing regime. To support this transition, Ukraine’s gas transmission system operator Ukrtransgaz has introduced a new information platform based on SAP software.

This step is a key milestone in the reform of Ukraine's energy sector. From now on, the Ukrainian gas market operates within the same framework which is applied in gas balancing zones of EU Member States. In this respect, the Ukrainian side has fulfilled all relevant commitments by the Government of Ukraine within the Association Agreement with the European Union.

At Ukrtransgaz’ website, market players can access diverse data, including the quantity of gas consumers registered in the system, as well as the number of submitted and confirmed nominations. Using their personal EIC codes, gas consumers can also check their status, including availability of a supplier or inclusion to the disconnection list.

During several months of the transition period, Ukrtransgaz has conducted over 20 workshops for more than 1500 network users and continues to consult all market participants through its Technical Support Center.
