Gas production by Ukrgazvydobuvannia could reach 15.2 bcm in 2017
Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has said that own natural gas production by public joint-stock company Ukrgazvydobuvannia in 2017 would reach 15.2 billion cubic meters (bcm).
The press service of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine gave the information after a visit of several wells of Ukrgazvydobuvannia in Poltava region on Thursday by Groysman.
"At the end of this year we are reaching 15.2 bcm and set a task to reach 20 bcm by 2020," the press service said, citing the prime minister.
He said that energy independence would allow the country not only to stop importing gas, which is the factor of influencing on Ukraine, but it would also ensure the reduction of gas prices inside the country.
