KIEV, June 15. /TASS/. The natural gas reserves in Ukraine’s underground storage facilities are estimated at more than 11.1 billion cubic meters, the Ukrtransgas state company said on Monday.
Ukraine pumps around 60 million cubic meters of gas into the facilities daily. "A total of 3.5 billion cubic meters of "blue fuel" have been pumped in the gas storage facilities this year," the company said.
The natural gas is accumulated in seven gas storage facilities "in an optimal technological regime," the press service said.
Ukraine's Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Vladimir Demchishin said earlier the country plans to have 19 billion cubic meters of gas in its underground storage facilities for the new heating season.
The success of the pumping effort will depend on the amount of funding, the minister said. Kiev is in talks with the European Commission, the EU executive body, on a new financial package needed for purchasing gas, he added.
