According to the results of July 2019, Ukrainian gas producing enterprises produced 1.7 billion cubic meters of natural gas. In particular, the dynamics of production during 2019 was as follows:

• 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.

The total production for 7 months increased by 1.6% and amounted to 12.13 billion cubic meters. It should be that the average daily production in July was 54.7 million cubic meters.

Gas transit through Ukraine in July 2019 decreased by 4.3% compared to the same period in 2018 and amounted to 8.11 billion cubic meters. The transit results for each of the 7 months of 2019 were:

• 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.

In total, 53.22 billion cubic meters were transmitted by gas pipelines in 2019 (+ 4.4%).

The increase in gas imports to Ukraine in July 2019 amounted to 66.6% and reached the level of 1.95 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.

According to the results of 7 months, imports amounted to 7.56 billion cubic meters.

In July, 2.31 billion cubic meters were pumped into underground gas storage facilities, and as a result, more than 15.85 billion cubic meters of natural gas were stored in storages at the end of the month. Thus, Ukrainian UGS facilities were loaded by 52% (whereas last year, this figure was 42%).
