The Association of Gas Producers of Ukraine has participated in the Second Ukrainian Gas Forum. The executive director of the Association, Roman Opimakh, has spoken about new investments and technologies. The Association has presented its forecasts of production for the following year, as well as analytics of why the industry is losing its chance for update and increasing gas production under the current taxation system.
