Background

In October 1948, the 509.6 km-long Dashava-Kiev gas pipeline segment began operation. For the first time, gas from Dashava went beyond the region and to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.[2] In August 1949, Joseph Stalin has issued a decree to extend the pipeline to Moscow.[2] Construction continued and was completed by 1952, when Moscow officially started to receive the gas.[3]

Until 1966, the pipeline was supplying gas from Dashava to Moscow. When new gas fields were discovered, the pipeline was connected to the Shebelinka-Poltava-Kiev Gas Pipeline. After the reconstruction of the loops at the compressor stations, the gas went through the pipes in the opposite direction - to the west. Now the pipeline supplies gas to most of the villages and towns of three regions in Ukraine: Kiev, Zhitomir and Ternopil.[2]
