KIEV, September 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The heating season in Ukraine may be postponed from October 15 to a later date to have time to accumulate more volumes of gas in underground storage facilities, CEO of Ukraine’s energy company Naftogaz, Andrei Kobolev, said on Tuesday.
“We hope we will be able to somewhat postpone the beginning of the heating season to the end of October. This way we will have one more billion /cubic metres/ in our underground gas storage facilities,” he told the First National television channel.
Currently, Ukraine’s underground storage facilities have more than 16 billion cubic metres of gas, which is not enough for the autumn-winter period.
“It would be comfortable for us to have 20 /billion cubic metres of gas in underground storage facilities/ in October,” he said, adding that it was “unrealistic.”
He said that in line with the approved balance, Kiev expected six more billion cubic metres of gas to be supplied in the reverse mode from Europe “by the end of the season.
