Russia's gas supplies to Slovakia fall due Czech reverse pumping
Lower gas supplies from Russia to Slovakia a growth of gas pumping by the Czech Republic into Slovakian underground storages in a reverse mode, Russia's National Energy Security Fund Deputy CEO Alexei Grivach told PRIME Thursday.
Since September 8, gas pipeline operators in Poland, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Romania, and Italy have separately reported on declines in Russian gas supplies varying from 5% in Romania to 45% in Poland and 50% in Slovakia.
Russian gas supplies to Romania decreased 13% of the agreed volume, the country's Energy Department said in a statement. "There is no cause for concern and (Russia) should get used to such situations," Romania's Energy Minister Rezvan Nikolesku said.
Romania satisfies 80% of its gas needs by inland gas production and Russia's gas giant Gazprom supplies the remaining 20%.
