Winter gas reserves in the European Union for the first time in history reached 100 billion cubic meters in anticipation of a new gas war between Russia and Ukraine in mid-winter. Gazeta Wyborcza writes about it, reports BusinessCensor.
Underground storage facilities in Poland, as of early October, are already 100% full. They pumped more than 3 billion cubic meters of fuel, which is about one sixth of gas consumption in the country during the year.
The Polish state-owned company Gas-System also plans to launch a gas pipeline on Friday that will facilitate the transmission of gas through Poland from the LNG terminal in Świnoujście, which should become an additional source of gas supplies to Poland in the event of a crisis.
Recall that the next round of EU-Ukraine-Russia tripartite negotiations on gas transit after January 1, 2020 will be held on October 28.
Previous negotiations took place on September 19th. Earlier, the press service of Naftogaz Ukrainy reported that during the previous round of tripartite gas negotiations in Brussels, Russian Gazprom for the first time had allowed the possibility of signing a contract for gas transit through Ukraine according to European rules after the completion of the current agreement on January 1, 2020.
Vice President of the European Commission Maros Sefcovic emphasized that "Europe will make every effort to help the Ukrainian side conduct unbundling and certification in accordance with European law".
