BERLIN, Sep 26 – PRIME. Gas injection in Germany continues, the total filling level of gas storage facilities has exceeded 91 percent, the Federal Network Agency of Germany reported.
“The overall occupancy rate of gas storage facilities in Germany is 91.02%. The level of the gas storage facility in Rehden is 74.92%,” follows from the regulator’s report.
The agency did not rule out a further deterioration in the fuel situation, but noted that now gas supplies to Germany remain stable, despite the lack of pumping through the Nord Stream and technical work on the European gas infrastructure.
“Maintenance work is not related to the security of supply in Germany. A potential, temporary decrease in import and export flows associated with repair work is partially offset from other sources,” the agency said.
It is noted that wholesale prices are still subject to significant fluctuations, but remain at a very high level. The regulator urged companies and households to prepare for a significant increase in gas prices and save consumption.
