Ukraine - Country Commercial Guide
Oil and Gas Equipment
Last published date:

Ukraine has taken steps to diversify fuel supplies and improve oil and natural gas production with the goal of increasing energy independence (it is worthwhile noting that generators and other electrical equipment are exempt from import duties and VAT as per CMU Order No.1260 dated November 9, 2022 which amended the CMU Order No.224 dated March 20, 2020). Ukraine’s oil and gas industry plays a significant role in the country’s national energy security strategy. Over the past several years, domestic production has declined; the goal of increasing domestic production creates significant opportunities for U.S. companies in supplying equipment and technology. Sub-sector best prospects include:
