• Naftogaz is a vertically integrated group whose activities span from gas extraction, import and supply through gas transmission and storage. The companies in which Naftogaz owns shares are major players in the gas and oil markets in Ukraine.

    Nearly 90% of Naftogaz assets and revenues are related to the gas business. Separate subsidiaries operate in each market segment.

    In 2015, Naftogaz supplied to the Ukrainian market gas volumes which are equivalent to 5% of Europe's total consumption.

    Ukrtransgaz operates a major gas transmission system (GTS) with the entry capacity of 302.1 bcm/year and the exit capacity of 178.5 bcm/year in the direction of the EU. The annual volume of gas transmitted to Europe in 2015 was 67.1 bcm.

    Ukrtransgaz also operates Europe's largest system of underground gas storage (UGS) facilities. It consists of 12 separate facilities with a total capacity of about 31 bcm (over a quarter of the EU's UGS capacity) and the injection capacity of 280 mcm/day. Ukrgazvydobuvannya (UGV) is Ukraine's largest company in gas upstream. In 2015, the company produced nearly 14.5 bcm of gas, accounting for 76% of the market.
