Zangas-NGSA private joint-stock company Zangas-NGS (Mykolaiv, Ukraine) has won a tender for a contract on modernization and maintenance of a 27.6-kilometer section of Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod cross-country pipeline.

In particular, a turn-key project of Armiansk-Jankoy gasline construction was completed involving a fiber-optical and teleautomatic system which not only enabled a rise in dependability of Crimean gas supply system but also afforded gas transportation from subsea fields of the peninsula to southern provinces of continental Ukraine thereby enhancing the nation’s energy security.
