The German Gas Regulator reports that the supply situation is tense and a worsening of the situation cannot be ruled out.
- At present, the security of supply in Germany continues to be safeguarded.
- If Russian gas supplies via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline remain at this low level, it will hardly be possible to achieve a storage level of 90% by December without additional measures. Current storage levels at the storage facilities in Germany are 58.65%.
- The reduction is also affecting the transfer of gas to other European countries such as France, Austria and the Czech Republic.
- Companies and private consumers must expect a considerable increase in gas prices.
