Ukrtransgaz informs that work on the reconstruction of a gas dehydration unit with automation of the technological process in production has begun at Dashavske underground gas storage. The planned cost of reconstruction is UAH 216.6 million (including VAT). The work is planned to be completed in the 4th quarter of 2021.
Dashavske UGS, with a design capacity of 2.2 billion cubic meters, is the third Ukrainian gas storage facility in terms of natural gas storage volumes.
It is noted that its reconstruction is guaranteed to ensure high quality of natural gas supplied to the main gas pipelines. It will also increase the efficiency and information content of the process equipment.
Re-equipment of the gas dehydration unit will reduce the annual consumption of fuel gas by 55-65%. In addition, upgrading technical equipment will help to reduce the harmful impact on the environment.
Automation of the technological process of the gas dehydration unit, which is part of the project, will make it possible to control the quality parameters of the gas supplied to the main gas pipelines online.
“Reconstruction of Dashavske UGS facility is one of the first projects we are starting to implement as part of a ten-year reconstruction program. Now there is a great demand for Ukrainian underground gas storages from both Ukrainian and foreign customers. Therefore, it is very important for us that the technical equipment of gas storage facilities operates without interruptions, and the processes of gas injection and withdrawal are stable. In addition, the reconstruction of the gas dehydration unit will improve the physical and chemical parameters. Under such conditions, the clients of the gas storage operator will not need to spend additional resources on the purification of fuel,” said Serhii Pereloma, Acting General Director of Ukrtransgaz.
