New gas transport opportunities are among GTSOU priorities, – Dmytro Lyppa

Gas TSO of Ukraine works on expanding the possibilities of the gas transport infrastructure of Ukraine to attract as many European service customers as possible to use Ukrainian GTS and gas storage to create new opportunities for the energy sector of Ukraine, particularly in terms of renewable gases development.

Dmytro Lyppa, CEO of the GTSOU, stated this during his speech at the Flame-2023, European Gas Conference.

In addition, GTSOU continues to work on the long-term increase of firm capacities to ensure gas import routes, including routes from LNG terminals to underground gas storage facilities (UGS) in Ukraine. Together with Ukrtransgaz, the company works on creating attractive offers for foreign traders regarding temporary gas storage in the country.

“So far, for injecting and re-exporting gas, Gas TSO of Ukraine is ready to provide firm capacities for transporting 54 mcm of gas per day from Europe to Ukraine and more than 300 mcm per day from Ukraine to Europe,” said Dmytro Lyppa.

Among the goals of GTSOU, the head of the company outlined the priority of creating conditions for developing the renewable gas industry in Ukraine. The company focuses on two directions: fostering cross-border trade of biomethane in the short term and hydrogen in the long term.

The key priority for GTSOU remains reliable and stable gas transportation to Ukrainian consumers.
