According to the results of August 2019, Ukrainian companies produced 1.70 billion cubic meters of natural gas, which is 4.5% less than in August 2018, and the same as the last month. Dynamics of natural gas production:
• January - 1.81 billion cubic meters;
• February - 1.64 billion cubic meters;
• March - 1.81 billion cubic meters;
• April - 1.70 billion cubic meters;
• May - 1.78 billion cubic meters;
• June - 1.69 billion cubic meters;
• July - 1.70 billion cubic meters;
• August - 1.70 billion cubic meters.
The total volume of production over 8 months increased by 1% and amounted to 13.83 billion cubic meters. It is worth noting that the average daily production in August amounted to 54.7 million cubic meters.

Gas transit through Ukraine decreased by 12.5% ​​ in August this year compared to the same period in 2018 and amounted to 6.36 billion cubic meters. Gas transit dynamics for 2019:
• January - 7.61 billion cubic meters;
• February - 6.21 billion cubic meters;
• March - 7.18 billion cubic meters;
• April - 8.30 billion cubic meters;
• May - 8.36 billion cubic meters;
• June - 7.45 billion cubic meters;
• July - 8.11 billion cubic meters;
• August - 63.6 cubic meters.
In total, 59.58 billion cubic meters were transmitted by gas pipelines in 2019 (+ 2.4%).

Gas imports to Ukraine in August reached 2.04 billion cubic meters. Thus, in 2019, natural gas by months was imported in such volumes:
• January - 0.24 billion cubic meters;
• February - 0.66 billion cubic meters;
• March - 0.63 billion cubic meters;
• April - 0.88 billion cubic meters;
• May - 1.54 billion cubic meters;
• June - 1.66 billion cubic meters;
• July - 1.95 billion cubic meters;
• August - 2.04 billion cubic meters.
According to the results of 8 months of this year, imports amounted to 9.60 billion cubic meters, which is 41.2% more than the same period last year. High volumes of gas imports were provoked primarily by favorable price offers on the market, as well as Ukraine’s preparation for a possible situation of lack of gas transit from January 1, 2020.

 

In July, 2.40 billion cubic meters were pumped into underground gas storage facilities, and as a result, at the end of the month in storages were more than 18.25 billion cubic meters of natural gas. Thus, Ukrainian underground gas storage facilities were loaded by 60% (whereas last year, the they were loaded by 48%).
