The second most powerful gas compressor station in Europe, Bilche-Volitsa, in the Lviv region was destroyed

As a result of a series of attacks in the Lviv region in western Ukraine, the second largest gas compressor station in Europe, Bilche-Volitsa, was destroyed. Information about significant damage to the facility was received from local authorities and confirmed by independent sources.

The Bilche-Volitsa gas compressor station played a key role in ensuring gas supply not only to Ukraine, but also to other European countries. Its capacity made it possible to transport significant volumes of natural gas, which made it a strategically important facility in the region’s energy infrastructure.

The attack on the station took place at night. The destruction was significant and restoration of the station will require significant time and financial costs.

All main buildings, main control room (management), SERB (operation and equipment), administrative building, entrance (security alarm), gas pumping unit (very significant damage) were destroyed. Worn-out gas pipelines remain in stock.
