Ukraine gas stocks highest for this time of year in a decade
Ukraine's gas storage sites held 18 Bcm (billion cubic meters) of natural gas as of March 1, which is 13% higher than a year ago year and the highest level for this time of year over the past decade, local storage operator Uktransgaz said Wednesday, according to S&P Global Platts.
