MOSCOW, September 13 – PRIME. German gas importer Uniper is considering filing a claim against Gazprom with the Stockholm Arbitration Court for damages, Reuters reported.
“Of course, Uniper … will consider such claims for damages against Gazprom and, if there is a high probability of success, will try to enforce them,” the agency quoted an email from the company.
The agency notes that Uniper was forced to purchase gas at an increased price from other suppliers after Gazprom first reduced and then completely stopped supplies via the Nord Stream gas pipeline, citing force majeure. The German company recorded a loss of 12.3 billion euros in the first half of 2022 and was forced to turn to the German government for support. According to the agency, the main reason for this, the company believes supply disruptions.
Uniper is a German energy company. Its core business is power generation, as well as global energy trading and a wide portfolio of gas assets, making Uniper one of Europe’s leading gas companies.
