Dear SPE Members, Officers and Board Members, Representatives of Oil&Gas Industry Worldwide,

As you know, from February 24th 2022 Ukraine has been suffering from a full-scale military invasion by russian federation. At this moment, thousands of Oil&Gas professionals are defending the country on the frontlines, as well as fighting to protect and safeguard it's energy infrastructure. Among them are SPE members from the SPE Central Ukraine section.We are extremely grateful for the aid and support we have already received from our international partners, which allows us to keep fighting for our freedom and for values we share with so many of you: family, freedom and liberty.
We thank SPE International for the power banks, first aid kits and warm clothes for the defenders of Ukraine we have received in early 2022. Still, the war is ongoing, becoming more vicious and brutal with each passing day with our colleagues at the battlefield needing more support - now more than ever.
We made this video for you:
- to show to the wider oil & gas community the current state of affairs as witnessed and filmed by us and our colleagues;
- to discuss ways in which YOU can support fellow petrotechs, through supporting the SPE Ukraine NGO fundraiser. 
- to encourage you and your employers to donate equipment (such as Starlinks or generators) or critically important medical items to Ukraine.

Ukraine has a century-long history of oil and gas production and possesses substantial conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon reserves, estimated at 9 billion tonnes of oil equivalent (Btoe).  Natural gas reserves are estimated at 5.4 trillion cubic metres (tcm), with proven reserves of 1.1 tcm of natural gas, more than 400 million tonnes (Mt) of gas condensate and 850 Mt of oil reserves.
Hydrocarbon resources in Ukraine are concentrated in three regions: the Carpathian region in the west; the Dnieper-Donetsk region in the east; and the Black Sea-Sea of Azov region in the south.

The Dnieper-Donetsk region accounts for 80% of proven reserves and approximately 90% of gas production, and the Carpathian region has 13% of proven reserves and 6% of production. The remaining 6% of proven reserves are in the southern region, where production is conducted both onshore and offshore on the shallow shelves of the Black and Azov seas. The aggregate production in this region is 5% of Ukraine’s total oil and gas production.
Ukraine has considerable unconventional gas potential in the form of coalbed methane in the main coal mining areas of eastern Ukraine and in two shale gas basins: a portion of the Lublin Basin, which extends into Poland, and the Dnieper-Donetsk Basin in the east. Coalbed methane resources are estimated at close to 3 tcm, and technically recoverable shale gas resources at 1.2 tcm
