Russian Gas Flows to Germany via Yamal Pipeline Unchanged

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian gas continued flowing via the Yamal-Europe pipeline to Germany at Thursday levels, preliminary data from German network operator Gascade showed, below volumes seen earlier in the week when Gazprom started to increase supplies to refill its storage.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Thursday that he could halt Russian gas flows through his country to Europe in a dispute with the European Union – the statement pushed the spot gas prices higher, but the flows remain unaffected so far.

Flows into Germany at the Mallnow metering point, which lies on the Polish border, resumed late on Monday and stood at an hourly volume of 7,858,075 kilowatt hours (kWh) on Friday morning, about the same as on Thursday.

At some point on Wednesday, the hourly entry flows at the Mallnow point were as high as 15,196,614 kWh. Exit flows at Mallnow, or gas transportation into Poland from Germany were at zero, the preliminary data showed.

Nominations for Friday daily flows of Russian gas to the west on the Ukraine-Slovakia border were at 92.1 million cubic meters, or 1 million megawatt hours, similar to levels in the previous two days that were above averages seen in the past month.
