Brand new for 2017

The appointment of new heads of major state-owned companies is an encouraging signal of the drive for greater transparency, efficiency and modernisation. Hear from McKinsey alumni Oleg Prokhorenko of UkrGasVydobuvannya and former BG top executive Mark Rollins of Ukrnafta

The reverse flow of gas from Slovakia has been a key pillar in Ukraine’s strategy of diversification of supply. Hear the views of Mirek Topolánek, Director, International Development of the Slovak gas TSO, Eustream, and former Prime Minister of the Czech Republic and Yuri Vitrenko of Naftogas of Ukraine

Ahead of the planned sale of a large government stake in the company in Q2 2016, Oleg Kozemko, Acting CEO of Centrenergo, will outline the strategic priorities of the leading electricity generator

As always, regional energy geopolitics will be hotly debated by local and international energy experts. We look forward to welcoming for the first time Dr Urban Rusnák, Secretary General of the Energy Charter Secretariat (and former Slovak Ambassador to Kyiv) and Edward Chow of the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
