- Hosted in-person in Kyiv from 20-22 October 2021, they will discuss and create commercial and partnership opportunities to deliver a secure energy future.
- The event showcases Ukraine’s natural gas opportunities and attractive investment climate as well as the Ukrainian gas sector’s central role in Europe’s energy supply.
Naftogaz and event organiser dmg events today announced the launch of a major gas sector event in Ukraine. The Ukraine Gas Investment Congress, taking place from 20-22 October 2021 under the patronage of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine and with the support of the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine, will bring together industry leaders from around the world to discuss energy transition, technology, and industry transformation, along with key trade flows and delivery strategies.
The event is ideally timed to address Ukraine’s efforts to strengthen links with the European Union and achieve energy independence by 2030. As the importance of European energy security increases, the event will provide a platform for government ministers, energy industry leaders, investors, and technology innovators to examine opportunities to modernise Ukraine’s resources.
These are quickly becoming an attractive investment proposition, with attendees able to consider a well-developed midstream infrastructure that facilitates the monetization of new developments at scale, asset backed trading, and extensive Europe export potential, with the largest underground storage capacity in Europe and transit capacity of 90bcm.
The Energy Strategy of Ukraine 2035 aims to create a highly competitive energy market which encourages foreign direct investment and underpins rapid infrastructure development and integration with the EU’s systems. The Gas Investment Congress provides a forum for value-add partners to contribute capital and technological expertise to secure growth opportunities and financial returns.
Naftogaz СЕО Yuriy Vitrenko said: “Ukraine, and with it Naftogaz, have a key role to play in providing energy security for Europe. With the second largest gas reserves on the continent, Ukraine has the single largest growth opportunity in natural gas production in the EU. As the Gas Investment Congress shows, the investment opportunities in the gas sector are enormous.”
Christopher Hudson, President of Global Energy, dmg events, commented, “We very much look forward to joining forces with Naftogaz to host this event in Ukraine. By bringing together energy industry leaders, policy makers and investors, the Ukrainian Gas Investment Congress will present Ukraine’s natural gas opportunities and attractive investment climate to the world.”
