Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities may interest Poland, Moldova, Romania and Hungary as Executive Director of Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine Serhiy Makohon reported on Facebook.

“We have significant infrastructure possibilities, which are not used fully now. For example, Ukrainian gas storages are the largest in Europe but currently, less than 50% is used. Our neighbors might be interested in our services on gas storage, particularly, Poland that announced the plans on the extension of its own gas storage. Moldova, Romania and Hungary also possess such need,” Makohon wrote.

He also underlined that the development of regional cooperation should become one of the priorities of the energy policy of Ukraine in the coming years.

Earlier Makohon stated that Ukraine will be able to receive 6,6 billion cubic meters of gas from Poland per year.

As we reported earlier, the reduction of gas transit through Ukraine would make 15 billion cubic meters this year due to the launch of the Turkish Stream from Russia to Turkey.
