For the year, production in Ukraine will come to 15.2 billion cubic meters of gas.

Domestic production of natural gas by Ukraine at the end of 2017 will amount to 15.2 billion cubic m. About it today, 23 November, said Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman, reports the official website of the Cabinet.

“At the end of this year we come to 15.2 billion cubic meters, and set the task by 2020 to reach production of 20 billion cubic meters”, – he said.

The Prime Minister stressed that energy independence will not only get rid of the fuel imports as a factor of influence on Ukraine, but will reduce gas prices in the country.

Recall that in 2035, Ukraine plans to increase gas extraction to covering own needs and export.
