Gazprom does not speed up gas supplies to Europe

It is also indicated that the reservation for Sunday was 4.7 million cubic meters. m, on Saturday – 5.2 million cubic meters. m, on Friday – 27 million cubic meters. m.

“It is possible that on Monday, from a physical point of view, the gas pipeline will be balancing on the verge of stopping, since a direct request for transportation from east to west is superimposed on a meeting (reverse) request – for supply from west to east,” the agency writes.

Now gas demand in Europe suffers from sky-high prices. The contract for delivery on Monday at the TTF hub in the Netherlands is $ 1583 per thousand cubic meters. In addition, at the end of December, demand in Europe traditionally decreases due to the holidays.
