Government again obliges energy companies, over 150 industrial enterprises to buy gas only from Naftogaz


The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has doubled the number of industrial enterprises, which are obliged to buy gas this winter exclusively from Naftogaz Ukrainy, from 74 to 152.

The Cabinet of Ministers adopted corresponding decree No. 647 at a meeting on November 26 and posted it on the government's website on November 28.

The list, in particular, includes nitrogen enterprises, which at the end of September were banned from buying gas of Ukrainian extraction or that from Ukrainian gas storage facilities, although in practice this ruling did not work.

At the same time, the Cabinet canceled its previous resolutions No. 596 and No. 599 of November 7 and 12, which were contested in court by private gas producers.
