German gas storage facilities are 90% full

German gas storage facilities are already 90 percent full, despite Russia cutting off supplies via the Nord Stream 1 main pipeline.

This is stated in the information on the website. Federal Network Agencyreports Ukrinform.

“The general state of storage (gas) in Germany is 90.07%,” the report says.

The only store where the fill level is lower, 74.63%, is Reason. It should be noted that this underground storage facility with a capacity of 4.2 billion cubic meters, the largest in Germany and one of the largest in Europe, belonged to the Russian Gazprom Germania Gmbh. From the beginning of the large-scale aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, it turned out to be almost empty (0.51% of the fill).

This facility will be scheduled for maintenance from September 12 to September 24, 2022. As early as April 4, the storage facility was handed over to the German regulator.

The agency’s report notes that the gas supply in Germany is still stable, safety is guaranteed, but in general the situation with the gas supply remains tense, “and a further deterioration of it cannot be ruled out.” Russia has not resumed gas supply via Nord Stream 1. However, Germany has already increased gas imports from other countries.

The government’s goal is to fill the gas storage facilities to 95 percent by early November. This amount of gas corresponds to the entire German consumption for the first two months of 2022.

Gas storage facilities serve as a “buffer” and are intended to absorb fluctuations in gas consumption. On particularly cold days in winter, up to 60 percent of gas consumption is covered by storage facilities.
