—- all events ——
We generated power and supplied heating to the town using coke gas till morning. Now we are waiting for the supply of natural gas.
The peace and quiet order is expected to take place from 10 am for us to restore the power lines. However, we observe growing hostilities and tensions and several shells have hit the town.
We are getting ready for the supplies of natural gas to maintain coke batteries and supply heating to the residential areas. The town remained under shell fire all night long.

The plant is trying to survive the lack of natural gas and continues to generate electricity and provide heating to Avdiivka until morning.
Сoke shops #3 and #4 have been mothballed. Still, the plant needs plenty of natural gas to maintain the right temperature of coke batteries and provide heating to the town.
As it was in February 2014, AKHZ needs about 18,000 cu m of natural gas per hour to save the town and the plant and prevent humanitarian and environmental disaster.
