Ukraine accumulates 59.5% of natural gas needed for heating season: PM Denys Shmyhal

Ukraine has accumulated 11.3 billion cubic metres of natural gas in its storage, or 59.5 per cent of the country’s needs for powering its heating facilities during the cold season, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said.

He told a cabinet meeting on Friday that Ukraine has pumped 3 billion cubic metres of gas into its reserves since the start of the year, the government press service reported.

He added that Ukraine’s coal reserves reached 1.5 million tons in mid-July, more than two times higher than the guaranteed reserves for this time determined by official documents, Xinhua news agency reported.

This month, Ukraine agreed with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on obtaining about $300 million to prepare for the heating season, Shmyhal added.
