The Office of the President plans to increase gas production by 20% in a few years.
The company has released production figures for 11 months of this year.
The company discovered a new field with prospective resources of up to 5 billion cubic meters of gas.
However, the Association of Ukrainian Cities stated the volumes of gas to be supplied by Naftogaz at a reduced price would not be enough for the heating season.
Still, the decrease was contained a bit.
The site, according to preliminary estimates, has significant prospects for the development of gas deposits.
PM emphasized that the readiness of the entire infrastructure of Ukraine for the heating season was 99%.
The company plans to use basin analysis to assess the oil and gas potential of the sites.
Daily production figures are 165 thousand cubic meters of gas.
In August, the company replenished natural gas stocks in its underground storage facilities by 1 billion cubic meters.
The search for gas is a risky business in which the probability of losses is higher than success.
The deviation from the production plan is minus 1.6% or 0.125 billion cubic meters of gas.
