Gazprom Export volumes of active gas in European UGSs exceed 5 bcm

In November, Gazprom Export’s volumes of active gas in the European underground gas storages (UGS) have exceeded 5 bcm. This is 1.5 times more than the level reached in the middle of November 2013. Gas injections continue in view of the coming winter season.

The maximum daily output of UGSs used by Gazprom Export will exceed 80 mcm in the coming winter.

Enhancing energy security in Europe is one of the priorities of the company — and storing gas in UGSs is one of the key elements in achieving this goal. Underground gas storages provide sustainable operational mode and serve as balancing mechanism of the European energy system in the periods of peak demand.
