The average monthly settlement price of gas in Europe has been growing for the fourth month. The indicator in May was 1030 dollars, in June – almost 1180 dollars (+14.6% in monthly terms), and in July – about 1805 dollars (+53%). Already in August, the figure slightly exceeded $2,450 (+35.7%). And on August 26, the estimated price even reached a record $3,507 per thousand cubic meters.

Gas prices continue to be under pressure due to the uncertainty with supplies from Russia. Despite the decline in recent days, they are several times higher than last year’s levels, when prices were already record highs. The latest explosive growth at the end of August was associated with Gazprom’s announcement that the Nord Stream gas pipeline was suspended for three days for scheduled maintenance. Quotes jumped above 3500 dollars per thousand cubic meters and updated historical records of the settlement price several times.

In early September, Gazprom announced a complete shutdown of the pipeline due to an oil leak detected at the only operating Trent 60 unit. Nord Stream downtime deprives Europe of up to 33 million cubic meters of gas per day, or about 1 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.
