Ukrtransgaz has completed the modernization of Hrebeniki gas-measuring station (Odesa region). With its help, it will be possible to pump gas in a reverse mode from Romania through Moldova in case of transit termination from the Russian Federation. This was reported by the press service.
“The station is ready to carry out reverse transmission of gas in the case of transit termination of fuel from Russia. The readiness of the facility for work was checked and confirmed by representatives of the associated operator of the GTS “Moldovagaz” by signing the relevant act”, the statement said.
Hrebeniki gas-measuring station is involved in the transmission of gas across the border of Ukraine – Moldova. The modernization of the station made it possible to significantly increase the maneuverability and reliability of the operation of the GTS, especially in the case of Russian gas transit from January 1, 2020.
The design capacity of the station after the modification is 70 million cubic meters per day in obverse mode and 4 million cubic meters per day in reverse mode from Moldova.
These works were carried out in accordance with the CESEC initiative, which involves ensuring the transmission of natural gas through trans-Balkan pipelines in the reverse direction from Greece through Bulgaria and Romania to Ukraine and Moldova.
Recall that in October Ukrtransgaz completed work at Komarno compressor station to increase the reverse from Poland. The compressor station is involved in the transmission of gas through the Ukraine-Poland border. The design capacity of the modernized section will be 15 million cubic meters per day in obverse mode and 18 million cubic meters per day in reverse from Poland.
