The increase of own oil&gas production is not only a contribution to energy security of Ukraine, but also an opportunity for the development of economy, of the own energy market. This fact becomes more and more obvious, however only in recent years significant steps have been taken to implement this strategic course.
Nowadays energy security is one of the most important priorities of Ukraine, with natural gas market included. Current gas imports covered by the domestic gas production capacity will allow Ukraine to be independent from the export market conditions, significantly decrease the currency market pressure, and get rid of the Russian Federation’s black marketeering.
Ukraine has sufficient natural gas reserves to meet own gas demand. According to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy, in 2017 Ukraine ranked second among the European countries by its proved gas reserves (1.1 trillion cubic meters), with only Norway surpassing (1.7 trillion cubic meters).
