The expert has refuted the statement for existence of "enormous" reserves of gas in Ukraine — Rambler News Service


In Ukraine there are no proved gas reserves which it would be possible to call "enormous", at the same time production level is in the country at rather quite good level for the European country, the deputy director for the power direction of Institute of power and finance Alexey Belogoryev has told RNS. Earlier the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Sergey Taruta has said that Ukraine possesses "enormous" reserves of gas and that she can begin to export it in "huge" volumes in the long term 7-10 years. "Traditional reserves of gas about which it would be possible to tell that they enormous, in Ukraine aren't present" — Belogoryev has told. He has added what is probable, the Ukrainian politician meant slate gas. "Existence of such resources in Ukraine is supposed, however those researches which have been conducted within the last 7-8 years, as far as I know, haven't yielded results. The European and American companies which initially wanted to participate in search and extraction of slate gas in Ukraine have stopped activity in this direction" — the expert has added. According to him even if in Ukraine considerable volumes of slate gas will be found, then it can't be sold at the market price as the cost of production will be very high what points experience of development slate a deposit in other countries of Europe to as, for example, Great Britain or Poland. Belogoryev has noted that now in Ukraine about 20 billion cubic meters of gas a year are extracted, and when carrying out competent reform in branch it will be possible to increase an indicator to 30 billion. "But about gas export, especially in large volumes, meanwhile there are no bases to speak, it is fantastic and nothing the confirmed scenario" — the expert has concluded.
