Legal advice on registering as a gas market participant

Registration as a gas market participant is a complicated process divided into several steps. If you want to understand all the nuances and have your questions answered, we recommend that you contact our lawyers for an introductory consultation.

At such consultation you will find out:

  • What needs to be done once the company is connected to the gas market?

  • Do I have to install additional equipment for the gas supply?

  • Who do you need to conclude contracts with in order to start operations?

The introductory consultation is an opportunity to get to know the lawyer who will deal with your case and to agree with him on a step-by-step algorithm of actions. We are focused on ensuring that you can achieve your objective in the shortest possible time, so we explain everything in detail and in simple language, rather than simply quoting legislation.


The timeframe for inclusion in the gas market is about a month. 

In the course of work there is always a need for additional costs associated, for example, with the receipt of electronic digital signatures, accreditation at the Ukrainian Energy Exchange, etc. The total amount of such costs is about UAH 5K.

Our experts can tell you the exact amount of legal services on registration as a gas market participant in Ukraine after clarifying all the details.

The procedure of joining the gas market includes a number of stages, such as: 

  • Signing of a Gas Transmission Agreement;
  • Signing of a Gas Distribution Agreement;
  • Accreditation at the Exchange.
We will help you to make head of the documents and provide A to Z legal support for the whole procedure. Our lawyers can also help with obtaining a Gas License.

Procedure for registration as a participant in the electricity market of Ukraine

In order to register as a participant in the electricity market, provided you already have a license, you will need to go through a number of registration steps:

  • Obtaining the EIC code of type X, an identifying code in the electricity market which will be used to conclude any transaction;

  • Signing an agreement with Ukrenergo. This will enable access to networks for the electricity, and payment will be set for such services;

  • Connection to Oblenergo. You can connect to any number of Oblenergos in Ukraine. As a standard, we conduct the first connection and offer our Clients a clear instruction on how to connect to the following Oblenergos, at their discretion;

  • Conclusion of the agreement with the Market Operator. This can be done simultaneously with the connection to the Oblenergo. To work with the Market Operator you need an account, which requires the preparation of a certain package of documents;

  • Registration on the Ukrainian Energy Exchange. Registration is performed online on the website of the Ukrainian Energy Exchange. During registration, you will need to select the desired sections.

Please note! In fact, the electricity market consists of several separate markets, which are called segments. They operate independently, with their own rules and prices.

You can choose the desired market segments. For example, if you are going to make “short” deals – buying today and selling tomorrow – all it takes is to register in the day-ahead and intraday markets.

Answers to frequently asked questions

What to do with the company after entering the gas market? What business activity can I conduct?

After passing all stages of gas market inclusion, you will get access to the electronic platform in the system of GTS Operator and the system of the Ukrainian Energy Exchange, where you will be able to select Clients and sign agreements with them electronically.

Do I need special equipment to supply gas?

No, all you need for a successful operation from a technical point of view is a good computer and fast Internet.

Do I need a gas supply specialist and a platform specialist?

No. After connecting to the system, we will give you basic information about working with the platform. Another part of the training information will be provided to you by the GTS Operator.

Who else do I need to conclude agreement with besides the GTS Operator in order for the company to conduct gas trading activities?

Besides the stages related to the GTS Operator, you’ll need to formalize correctly the company’s relations with Oblgaz and the Ukrainian Energy Exchange.

The gas market reforms have been launched quite a long time ago, but unfortunately, they are not completed yet. Accordingly, we have to be ready for some compromises at the first stages. But we also have to understand that nothing ventured, nothing gained and the gas market is a very promising and fast-growing area that can bring significant revenues.

Our lawyers will create your business in the gas market on a turnkey basis - from obtaining a license to inclusion in the gas market and consulting.

We make solving legal issues simple.
