The European Union reduces the frequency of pumping gas to underground storage facilities

The Association of European Gas Utilities Operating Companies said, "The European Union reduced in September the rate of pumping gas to underground reservoirs, by 13.5% in monthly terms.


Currently, the pumping rate is growing by 0.32 percentage points per day, compared to 0.37 percentage points in August, during which some countries continue to draw net gas from underground reservoirs.


In total, there are currently 90 billion cubic meters of gas in European underground storage facilities, with total storage reaching 83.27%, an increase of 0.28 percentage points per day.


At the end of August the EU target was reached - filling underground tanks to 80% of their total capacity.


It is noteworthy that on some days since the beginning of autumn, more gas has been withdrawn from the "underground" than was pumped into it, and among these countries, Belgium, Denmark and Poland can be mentioned.
