Russian gas to Europe chains 10 days of reverse flow

The Yamal-Europe pipeline, which routinely supplies Russian gas to western Europe, sent fuel back to Poland on Thursday for the 10th day in a row, according to data from German network operator Gascade.

According to data from the Mallnow measurement point, located on the German-Polish border, fuel was flowing eastward towards Poland on Thursday morning, with an hourly volume of more than 1.2 million kilowatt hours (kWh / h), slightly above the levels recorded in the last 48 hours.

The pipeline is one of the main export routes for Russian gas to Europe.

The auction results showed that Russian gas exporter Gazprom did not reserve gas transit capacity for exports through the Yamal-Europe pipeline for Thursday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said last week that Germany was reselling Russian gas to Poland and Ukraine rather than easing its high market costs, blaming both the decline and the price hike on German gas importers.
