Currently, the natural gas storage facilities in the European Union are on average 86% full.

As a correspondent from Ukrinform reports, Martin Sellmayr, head of the European Commission’s delegation in Austria, said this during a speech at the Austrian Energy Congress 2022 in Vienna.

“Today we have reached 86%. Austria – 75%, other EU Member States – over 90%. This means we will not have to freeze this winter. We will not end up in the emergency situation that Putin is pushing us into,” he said . .

According to Selmayr, filling the gas tanks was “not cheap, but the right” solution.

The head of the European Commission’s office in Austria also pointed to a significant reduction in gas supplies from Russia to EU countries. According to him, the EU imported 40% of the gas it needs from Russia before the war, but now Russian gas represents only 9% of total gas imports.

As reported, Russia recently completely stopped supplying gas to Europe via Nord Stream, triggering another surge in prices in the EU energy market. The European Union has developed a strategy to overcome the current energy crisis, the main elements of which are to improve energy efficiency, diversify energy supply routes to break dependence on Russia, and accelerate the development of renewable energy sources to phase out the use of fossil fuels .

Russia is threatening countries that support Ukraine’s fight against Russian aggression with a complete gas supply interruption, which could trigger a deep energy crisis on the eve of the winter season.
