Gas supplies via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline more than halved amid an accident at the Urengoy condensate preparation plant. About it informs Interfax with reference to the data of the German gas transmission operator Gascade.
As follows from the data, on July 5, most of the day, deliveries at the entrance to the German gas transmission system amounted to 2.1 million m³ / hour. After 17:00, deliveries more than halved.
The fire broke out at the plant for the preparation of condensate for transport in Novy Urengoy in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug on the night of August 5. Arrived firefighters fixed internal combustion of premises. No injuries or threats to nearby objects were recorded.
Previously Gazprom completely stopped gas injection into underground storage facilities in Europe. The Russian company also cut fuel supplies via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline to Germany.
European storage facilities are now slightly over 57%, 16 percentage points lower than the average over the past five years.
Rusenergy partner Mikhail Krutikhin told The Insider why this situation does not pose a threat to Europe ahead of the heating season and why it is cheaper for fuel consumers to use liquefied natural gas.
