NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine has assured that Ukraine has sufficient natural gas reserves in its underground storage facilities, the company’s press service wrote on Twitter.
“A drop in temperatures is expected in Ukraine. We are ready for this. This time we are not waiting for gas supplies from Gazprom. The gas demarche boomeranged against Gazprom – they showed the EU they considered gas as a weapon and could use it at any time. We have 8.9 billion cubic meters of gas in underground storage facilities, which is 0.7 billion more compared with the same date in 2017,” reads the statement.
According to weather forecasts, a significant drop in temperatures and snow are expected in Ukraine on March 17-18. In some regions the temperature could reach 13 degrees below zero. (Ukrinform/Business World Magazine)
