Union of the Ukrainian Petroleum Product Market Operators is Renamed to the Ukrainian Oil&Gas Association

UPPMO Association participants working meeting took place.

At the meeting the new name of the industry association, the Ukrainian Oil&Gas Association (UOGA) was approved. It was also decided to develop a balanced excise policy regarding LPG, further steps to actively counteract illegal fuel stations. The reasoned position regarding the current version of the draft law on bioethanol developed by the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Security of Ukraine was formulated.

“Members of the Oil and Gas Association have a lot of claims to this bill, both in the regulatory and legal framework, and in connection with the elementary unpreparedness of the transport fleet of Ukraine and petroleum products supply enterprises for such innovations. As the experience of Europe shows, we should prepare for a decade for the massive use of biofuels. At the moment we are studying the situation from all sides. We applied to the Association of Manufacturers of Alternative Transport Fuels, to direct producers of bioethanol and biodiesel, to various public consumer organizations. We want to develop and make constructive proposals that will help to maintain parity of pricing and openness of the market,” the head of the Association Dmitrii Kulik said.

In addition to strategic issues, several new nominations to members of the Ukrainian Oil&Gas Association participants interested in a civilized and competent approach to the development of the oil and gas industry were considered at the meeting.

The next working meeting will be held in mid-March.
