The Ukraine is implementing the unbundling of the gas transmission system operator from the incumbent Naftogaz and has expressed its interest in cooperating with an experienced Western transmission system operator(s) in the management of the national transmission system, in accordance with the Law of the Ukraine “On the Natural Gas Market”, the Eusteram press release reads.
