- TTF SEP 22 up 2.3% at 231€/MWh
- Russian flows from Nord Stream are still running on just one out of five turbines resulting in 20% of flow capacity. Nominations today show flows at 31.9mcm/d. Gas transit via Ukraine is steady at 42.1mcm/d.
- Norwegian supply is about 13mcm/d below start of the month levels due to planned capacity reduction at both Troll and Kollsnes. Nominations are today at 320.6mcm/d.
