A new gas field in Kharkiv is producing 249,000 cubic meters a day
A new gas field in Kharkiv is producing 249,000 cubic meters a day, Ukrgazvydobuvannia reports. The state gas production company estimates possible reserves of the reserve at 300 million cubic meters. Under pressure to produce more gas as Ukrainians worry that Russia will cut gas flows in 2020, the gas company’s press department blames licensing delays by local authorities. The company, the nation’s largest producer, charged Wednesday that Poltava Regional Council for two years refused to approve licenses over 60 times, a stalling action that is depriving Ukraine of 1 billion cubic meters in gas this year.
