Germany lacks gas reserves to cover next winter


Germany lacks gas reserves to cover next winter

Berlin, Aug 30 (Prensa Latina) The head of the German Federal Network Agency, Klaus Müller, stressed that the country's energy security for next winter depends on the supply of gas through the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline.

Müller stressed that the reserves currently available in Germany will not be enough to fully cover the country’s needs during winter.

“We will also need gas from Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway and France”, Muller emphasized, as quoted by Deutsche Welle.

The Russian Nord Stream 1 pipeline stopped pumping gas on July 11th, when it entered a repair cycle.

After the resumption of operations, Gazprom, the operator of the pipeline, expects to pump a daily amount of almost 63.9 million cubic meters to European consumers.

Russia cut gas supply via Nord Stream 1 by 60 percent in mid-June due to sanctions that prevented a Canadian subsidiary of Siemens from returning a turbine destined for GazProm’s pumping plants.

The pipeline, which connects Russia with Germany via the bottom of the Baltic Sea, has a nominal capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year.
