In 2012 Naftogaz, the state gas and oil company of Ukraine, signed a $3.656 billion (€2.75bn) credit agreement with the state-owned China Development Bank to finance the substituting of natural gas with locally produced coal, to lessen Ukraine's dependence on foreign - mainly Russian - natural gas. The contract, guaranteed by the Ukrainian government, stipulates implementation of five coal gasification plants,[1] in the Luhansk, Donetsk, and Odessa regions, using Shell technology approved by China.[2]

In February 2014, Naftogas announced a tender of Rs 8.964 million for pre-development work on designing a coal gasification plant in Odessa and Severodonetsk Gorlovka (Sievierodonetsk). The Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Edward Stawicki predicted that Ukraine will begin construction of a coal gasification plant in cooperation with China in September 2014.[3]
