Naftogaz Ukraine includes joint-stock company Ukrgazvydobuvannya, which discovered an oil and gas deposit with a capacity of more than 460.000 m³ per day in a depleted gas field. Mining started in March of this year.
"It has the highest production rates among the wells that the company has put into operation over the past 2.5 years. This is an important achievement for us," Naftogaz chairman Oleksiy Chernyshov.
Exploration of the well and its launch became possible thanks to modern equipment and methods of seismic exploration. That is why it was possible to find a saturated deposit and the best point for drilling on the exhausted deposit.
We remind you that Ukraine has launched a program of a complete embargo on Russian gas and focusing on own extraction and production. According to Chernyshov, by the next heating season, Ukraine will heat consumers from its own natural gas reserves.
