The Storage System Operator extends the functionality of the Information Platform

The number of clients storing the gas in Ukrainian underground storage facilities is growing steadily. Today it is about 880 companies, including almost 100 foreign entities.

For this reason, the task of the Storage System Operator is to automate and simplify the process of natural gas storage administration as much as possible. Therefore, improving and extending the functionality of the Information Platform is one of the key priorities of the Operator.

Today we are pleased to inform you about 3 new functionalities of the I-platform, which the Operator successfully introduced earlier this year.

1) Implementation of the financial block;

2) Improving the process of additional customs declarations processing;

3) Automation of separate gas accounting in different customs regimes.

Since January 2021 the Storage System Operator of Ukraine has implemented the new functionality for the transfer of advance payments made for storage services. The Customer has the opportunity to manage the funds independently, transferring advances from one service code to another in the personal customer’s cabinet in the I-platform.

The next achievement is the extension of the functionality of submitting applications for additional customs declarations. This function has become available in the personal customer’s cabinet in the I-platform since March 2021. It is represented as the automatic selection of numbers of the corresponding periodic and additional customs declarations.

Another improvement has been introduced since March, 2021 as the automation of separate gas accounting in different customs regimes. Within the framework of this function, consignments differentiation has been carried out in the customs warehouse and customs warehouse + short-haul regimes, which, in turn, allows the Client to track its gas consignments and the balance on them in a more convenient way.

We hope that the new functionality will make our cooperation with you more comfortable and efficient. At the same time, the team of the commercial department of JSC "Ukrtransgaz" will continue to work on improving the business processes of the Storage System Operator.
