We plan to launch deliveries of gas to Avdiyivka before the new year. By the end of year, the construction of the supplying pipeline to Avdiyivka from the village of Ocheretyne should be completed. Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services Hennadii Zubko, who, in the framework of a working visit to Donetsk region, visited the construction site of the facility.
In June of this year, 20,000 residents of Avdiyivka and settlements of Yasynuvata area through the shelling by the Russian terrorists as a result of the accident on the main gas pipeline were left without gas supply.
A decision was taken to provide the maximum alternative energy deliveries to the town of Avdiyivka. To resolve the situation, a project for the construction of the supplying gas pipeline was developed. The gas pipeline to Avdiyivka is being built bypassing the temporarily occupied territory over 14 km long.
