EQT Donates Production Equipment to Ukraine


Donation Will Help JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya Restore Damaged Facilities and Increase Production 

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- EQT Corporation (NYSE: EQT), the largest producer of natural gas in the United States, today announced that the Company donated oil and gas production equipment to JSC Ukrgasvydobuvannya, Ukraine's largest gas producer. The equipment will be used to restore damaged oil and gas production facilities and revive critical production in wartime conditions.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine nearly a year ago, the full-scale war has caused damage and destruction to dozens of Ukrgasvydobuvannya's production facilities.

"Ensuring a reliable supply of energy is a challenge, not only for Ukraine, but for the entire world. We are proud to support our fellow energy workers in Ukraine as they fearlessly continue production operations under the most difficult conditions," said Toby Z. Rice, President and CEO of EQT Corporation. "This equipment will play a major role in helping to stabilize Ukraine's energy supply. We hope our colleagues continue to stay safe during these dangerous times and look forward to the day this war ends."

The United States Government and the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine supported the operation to deliver the equipment, which arrived in early February.

"The war has significantly complicated delivery of required gas production equipment and materials. Certain equipment is just not readily available on the Ukrainian market," said Oleg Tolmachev, Acting CEO of Ukrgasvydobuvannya. "We are extremely grateful to EQT for helping us overcome some of these difficulties. Thanks to their generous donation we will be able to repair damaged facilities much faster and implement critical production projects that will supply much needed gas to our country."

Ukrgasvydobuvannya, which specializes in natural gas and gas condensate production, is the largest gas production company in Central and Eastern Europe. Ukrgasvydobuvannya produces 12.5 bcm of gas, which accounts for nearly 70% of total gas production in Ukraine.
