Dmytro Lyppa, CEO of Gas Transmission System Operator of Ukraine (GTSOU), and Mykola Kolisnyk, Deputy Minister of Energy of Ukraine, discussed prospects for developing Ukraine’s gas transmission system. They visited a gas infrastructure facility in the Kyiv region, transporting gas to millions of consumers and industrial users.
During the meeting, Dmytro Lyppa, CEO of GTSOU, highlighted the company’s essential tasks, such as modernizing the gas transmission system, increasing energy security, and preparing for the upcoming heating season. Mr. Lyppa also emphasized the safety of employees as a top priority for the company.
