DTEK Oil&Gas achieved daily gas production of 5 million m3

In May, DTEK Oil&Gas reached a daily natural gas production of 5 million m3. This figure was achieved for the first time in the company’s history and history of all private gas production in Ukraine.

The daily production rate was increased due to the implementation of strategic infrastructure projects and a deep drilling program with the commissioning of new high-yield wells at the Semirenkivske and Machukhske fields in 2019. Also, measures to stimulate wells and introduction of innovative technologies helped to increase production rate.

“Despite the unstable economic situation in the country and the difficult conditions in the gas production sector as a result of record low gas prices, we are making every effort to implement our strategy to increase natural gas production. The current indicator is the result of systematic technological development of the company and high professionalism of our employees. This is a significant contribution to the development of gas production in Ukraine in the current difficult conditions”, emphasized Igor Schurov, DTEK Oil&Gas CEO.
