  • There are many reasons to be confident of a shale gas exploration boom occurring in Ukraine. The most important is the geological similarities and geographic proximity to Poland. EuroGas believes that the Lublin Basin, which lies under Poland and Ukraine, could be 10-15 times as large as the Barnett formation in the US, and have a pay zone close to 4000 ft compared to 200-300 ft for Barnett.
  • Secondarily Ukraine is more suitable for horizontal drilling than the more densely populated parts of Europe because of the large area required to drill, the use of large amounts of water, and the chemicals used for shale gas drilling. The use of chemicals, although not proven to be an environmental hazard, has come under extra scrutiny in heavily populated areas.
  • Thirdly Ukraine consumes approximately 80 billion cubic meters of gas every year and only produces 20 billion cubic meters so the remainder of supply is imported from Turkmenistan and Russia. The supply from Russia has faced yearly disruption. Gas imports from Turkmenistan transits through Russia are also becoming entangled in Russian-Ukrainian gas disputes.
