Andriy Kobolyev, head of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine, predicts that in a few years, 5-7 large companies will be present on the retail gas market, Ekonomichna Pravda reports.
“I really expect that in 2-3 years there will be 5-7 large companies operating in this market, each of which will offer a high-quality and wide range of services and products,” he said.
Kobolyev also noted that companies that cannot meet the client's needs have nothing to do in this market.
“There are quite a lot of traders on the Ukrainian market. This is a tricky business. It requires a quality gas supply, a supply portfolio, customer service, money and capital. Therefore, the changes that will occur in the near future – small traders who do not bring any value to the consumer and cannot offer him even a decent level of Internet service, will become uncompetitive.”
As a reminder, Naftogaz told how it will sell gas after the cancellation of PSO.
