The adoption by the Government of Ukraine of a number of programs to increase natural gas production necessitated the renewal of the technical base of Ukrgazvydobuvannya, which was morally and technically obsolete. The article examines the current state of technical support of Ukrgazvydobuvannya, which allowed us to conclude that its technological dependence on imported machinery and equipment, mainly Chinese production. It is emphasized that the tender and procurement policy pursued by Ukrgazvydobuvannya creates unequal conditions for domestic and foreign manufacturers of machinery and equipment for the gas industry. As a result of such a policy, the industry's dependence on imported machinery and equipment increases, which leads to a decrease in its level of competitiveness. The study found that the reason for this is the lack of certificates of quality of American Petroleum Machinery and Equipment of the American Petroleum Institute (API), due to the problems of its adaptation to the conditions of Ukraine. The article identifies that the main problems associated with the adaptation of API certificates are: the lack of official translations into Ukrainian of the standards of the American Petroleum Institute (API) and English-Ukrainian dictionary for professionals in the field of oil and gas engineering, differences in structure and requirements API and GOST, the lack of Ukrainian engineering companies, detailed information on the long-term needs of «Ukrgazvydobuvannya» in technical products. The article provides proposals for the development of measures that will facilitate the adaptation of international quality certificates to modern conditions of Ukraine. This will help direct the demand of gas companies towards the domestic market of machine-building products. The implementation of these measures will bring the industry engineering complex out of technological stagnation, increase its competitiveness and move away from high dependence on imported supplies of machinery and equipment.
