Agency: German tanks will not be enough to survive the winter without Russian gas

The head of the German federal network, Klaus Müller, said that the volumes of gas currently in Germany’s reservoirs are not enough for the country to survive the winter without gas supplies from Russia.

In an interview with Bild am Sonntag, he added: “Gas storage facilities are 65% full, up from last week, but not enough to go through next winter without Russian gas. Much will now depend on whether and how much gas will flow through the Nord Stream line after maintenance is completed.

Muller believes that now gas prices may have reached a stage of stability. Muller explained that “there was no significant price increase this week, despite the suspension of Nord Stream.

He stressed that the authorities will try first of all to provide domestic needs with gas, and then the industry. He said: “Even if Russia stops pumping gas, we will continue to receive it from Norway, the Netherlands and Belgium, and later from German LNG pumping stations.”

He pointed out that his country should show solidarity in the gas sector with other neighboring countries and not harm them in this area.
