Downward deliveries have been declining since Saturday, leading to a rise in gas prices in Europe close to the maximum. The volume of gas and the direction of its flow in the pipeline are according to the requirements of the customer.
According to Reuters, Russian gas giant Gazprom has not reserved a day for export capacity through Jamal, which will supply Russian gas to Germany via Poland.
The price of a one-month gas gas contract delivered in January reached over 153 euros (approximately 3,860 K) per megawatt-hour (MWh) at the virtual Title Transfer Facility (TTF) in the Netherlands. It showed a growth of no more than three percent and was located near a record 155 euros, where it was in June.
The worst time
Peruen Russian pichz dodich at the worst time. In Europe, there is little wind, but also the production of electricity from the winds noticeably lagging. In addition, the weather is relatively cold, which, of course, increases the demand for energy, said Trinity Bank chief economist Luk Kovanda. Especially if frosts occur in the EU in the coming weeks, it is definitely impossible to rule out blackouts or the need for the Sri Lankan, region by region, to supply electricity to businesses and households, he added.
Gazprom is also a supplier of gas to many European countries and has a monopoly on the import of these raw materials from Russia through the pipeline. Gazprom will supply gas according to customer requirements and in full compliance with current contracts, the Russian company said on Monday.
The Polish state gas and oil company PGNiG today confirmed that Gazprom is fulfilling its contractual obligations in accordance with its requirements. The contract is halfway according to our requirements, we do not have to pay, said a spokesman for the Polish company Radoslaw Kazimierski.
Europe is facing a sharp rise in gas prices this year. In this context, Moscow has become a source of accusation that Germany and the European Union are trying to curb the supply of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to speed up the operation of the pipeline. In addition to high demand, there is also an increase in the prices of liquefied natural gas (LNG), which Europe comes from outside Europe.
