Position & job purpose: 

Tetra Tech is seeking an independent consultant to provide expert guidance and advice on the implementation of the EU gas acquis and how it may be adapted and implemented within Ukraine's gas sector.  This is an independent consulting engagement estimated to be about 365 days with the possibility of extension for another term. The approximate commitment is 4 hours per day. 



  • Regulatory Expertise: Serve as the project's key expert on EU gas market acquis – the regulations, directives and network codes, including balancing, capacity allocation, tariffs, security of supply, unbundling and governance. Provide insights into best practices and lessons learned from EU implementation of the ‘third package’ to inform the development of regulatory frameworks in Ukraine.
  • Implementation Strategies: Develop tailored strategies for implementing specific aspects of the EU gas market acquis within Ukraine's gas sector. Identify potential challenges and opportunities and offer solutions to address them effectively. This will be done in close cooperation with ESP’s Ukrainian experts and key stakeholders such as Ministry of Energy, the Energy Regulator, Naftogaz and the Gas TSO of Ukraine.
  • Policy Alignment: Collaborate with the project team and relevant Ukrainian authorities to assess existing gas market reform policies and identify areas that require better alignment with EU standards. Propose recommendations for policy adjustments to promote convergence with the EU approach.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: Engage with key stakeholders across a wide spectrum in Ukraine, including government agencies, regulatory bodies, energy operators, and industry associations. Foster collaborative relationships and provide technical advice to support the adoption of EU best practices.
  • Capacity Building: Develop and support training programs for Ukrainian energy sector professionals to enhance their understanding of EU gas market acquis. Empower local stakeholders to implement and enforce the measures effectively.
  • Market Analysis: Support gap analyses of Ukraine's gas market to identify areas that would benefit from amendments to better align with EU practices. Provide insights to inform decision-making processes, including commentary on how the EU developed its own approach, why certain decisions were made and why certain outcomes and approaches may be adopted in Ukraine.
  • Act as an expert advisor to ESP during bilateral and multilateral stakeholders, supporting ESP’s positions with beneficiaries and the donor community. Evaluate the quality of ESP’s deliverables related to EU policy and regulation alignment.
  • Actively utilize your EU regulatory network to bring insights and contacts relevant to ESP’s work, and support engagement with expert consultants brought in to deliver specific projects related to the EU acquis implementation.
