13 October 2020

Burisma, an international energy group, is implementing a large-scale investment project together with Ukrainian and American partners — construction of a turbo-expander unit at the gas distribution station in the Vodianivske field (Kharkiv region).

Currently, a 8,200-meter high-pressure gas pipeline is under construction, which will connect the Zhuravlyna structure of Derkachivsko-Voitenkivska area and the Vodianivske field gas treatment facility to supply natural gas to the Vodianivske field gas distribution station, where the turbo-expander unit will help its advanced purification from propane butane mixture (CPBM or LPG). After purification, the high-quality natural gas will be supplied to the country’s gas main lines.

According to preliminary estimates, the total amount invested by Burisma Group into the project will exceed UAH 1 billion.

The turbo-expander unit will allow Burisma Group to improve extracted gas processing, increase extraction profitability, and reduce production costs. It will also allow for a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

The project will create hundreds of new jobs and increase the volume of annual tax payments by tens of millions of hryvnias.

“Implementation of this project carries a huge importance not only for our Group, but for the entire country as well. Because it will allow to open new jobs with salaries exceeding the market average in the region, the amount of tax payments will increase, and the level of environmental and energy safety of Ukraine will improve,” — mentioned Taras Burdeinyi, Burisma Group CEO.

The turbo-expander unit’s capacity exceeds 1.8 mln cubic meters of gas per day. Project construction is at the stage of completion, it will be gradually put into operation during 2021.
