Gas declines in European storage facilities after Belgium consumes all its reserves

European underground storage facilities witnessed a decrease in the proportion of gas after Belgium consumed all its reserves during the past 24 hours.


And the Association of Gas Infrastructure Operators in Europe announced in a statement: “The gas cut from European underground storage facilities exceeded the input for the first time since the spring, after Belgium exhausted all its gas reserves during the past 24 hours.”


 Those facilities were on the 30th of last September "87.83% full, and contain more than 95 billion cubic meters of gas, which expired at 04:00 (GMT) on October 1," the statement added.


“The rate of gas input decreased for the sixth day in a row to 0.51 percentage points per day, the lowest level in the past six months, due to Belgium almost completely emptying its only underground gas storage facility, with a total of 92.09 percentage points,” the statement noted.
