Ukraine will go through the upcoming heating season for the first time solely relying on gas from its own production.

This was announced by the Chairman of Naftogaz Ukraine, Oleksiy Chernyshov.

“I want to remind you that we are increasing the volumes of gas from our own production, and these indicators are growing. In 2023, Naftogaz drilled a record number of new wells, and we will continue this trend next year. This winter, we plan to go through using gas from Ukrainian production, and our calculations confirm this possibility”, he said.

Chernyshov emphasized that Ukraine will navigate the heating season without disruptions not only in terms of gas supply but also without changes in the cost of natural gas for the population.
