The price of gas exports to non-CIS countries increased in six months of 2022

The cost of fuel is affected by the uncertainty surrounding supplies from Russia. Despite the decline in volumes in recent days, pumping is several times higher than last year’s levels, when prices were record highs. The last jump in prices (above $3,500 per thousand cubic meters) occurred at the end of August, caused by the suspension of the Nord Stream gas pipeline for a three-day scheduled maintenance.

In early September, Gazprom announced a complete shutdown of the pipeline for an indefinite period due to a malfunction of the last operating unit. A downtime of the pipeline deprives Europe of up to 33 million cubic meters of gas per day, or about a billion cubic meters per month. Such losses are superimposed on the previous reduction in supplies from Russia via Nord Stream and other routes by at least 8-9 billion cubic meters per month.
