Ukrtransgaz and GTSOU agreed to develop the hydrogen market in Ukraine

Ukrtransgaz, an independent operator of gas storage facilities in Ukraine, together with the Gas Transmission System Operator (GTSOU), will explore opportunities for developing the market for renewable gases in Ukraine: hydrogen, biomethane and synthetic methane. To this end, the companies signed a corresponding memorandum, the press service reports.

The document provides for strategic cooperation in decarbonizing the energy sector, unlocking the potential of renewable gases in Ukraine, researching technologies and processes for their transportation and storage.

The companies will jointly carry out research and development work, study market opportunities, agree on promising routes and pilot projects for the storage of renewable gases and their mixtures with natural gas.

Ukrtransgaz and GTSOU will work to create new supply chains for hydrogen, biomethane and synthetic methane, including to European countries, update energy and climate policies, and contribute to the creation of regulations necessary for further synchronization of the Ukrainian energy sector with the European market.

On September 9, the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading a draft law on the development of biomethane production.

To recap, the first hydrogen filling station will appear in Ukraine.

As reported, GTSOU became a member of the Central European Hydrogen Corridor.
