Fifth Ukrainian Gas Forum in Kyiv
The Fifth Ukrainian Gas Forum attended by domestic and international gas experts was held at the InterContinental Kyiv hotel on October 9-10. The event lasted two days.
The Forum was attended by representatives of the Ukrainian government, foreign and Ukrainian gas companies, global expert community, experts from EU regulators, European and American business groups, and the delegates from the European Commission and the Energy Community.
The major challenges the Ukrainian gas market faces are energy security in the region, integration with the European market, filling needs and wants of all categories of consumers, diligent interaction with the environment, implementation of technological innovations, transparent and straightforward legislation. The key idea of the Fifth Ukrainian Gas Forum is to support the Ukrainian government in its endeavors to implement radical and thoroughgoing reform in the Ukrainian gas market.
Ukrainian Energy L.L.C., acting as the General Sponsor of the event, was among the participants of the Forum. The main goal of Ukrainian Energy L.L.C. is to contribute to an increase in oil and gas production by private players and pursuing the strategic aim of gaining energy independence by Ukraine. Ukrainian Energy L.L.C. became the only foreign investor to solely win the PSA tender this year.
Aspect Holdings, L.L.C., which together with SigmaBleyzer Investment Group, L.L.C., launched the New International Fund for Ukrainian Energy L.P. (IFUEL), which will focus on investments in Ukraine’s energy industry, has also actively participated in the panel discussing Involvement of Investments and Innovations Into Gas Production Sector.
We express our appreciation to the Ukrainian Gas Forum Organizing Committee.
