The founder of the «Zahidnadraservis» company, Zinovy ​​Kozytskyi, reported this in an interview for Forbes.

«There are no hostilities in the west of the country, so it is our duty to support gas production. We did not stop work, carried out geological, seismic work, and drilled 12 wells – all four of our drillers are at work. A new gas field was discovered in the Lviv region, on which two wells with good reserves were drilled. The flow rate of the field is 200,000 cubic meters per day,» – he says.
