Due to hostilities, the gas pipeline in the Donetsk region was damaged

On March 10, due to hostilities, the high-pressure gas pipeline to the Vuhlehirska TPP gas distribution station was damaged. At 5:50 a.m., the company’s dispatchers recorded a significant decrease in the systems’ inlet pressure.

Specialists of GTSOU have already started localization of the accident, the preliminary assessment – the town of Svitlodarsk will remain with gas. The scope of repair work is currently being clarified.
