Gas flows eastward on Yamal-Europe steady

Eastbound gas flows on the Yamal-Europe pipeline to Poland from Germany were mostly stable on Thursday morning, while flows of Russian gas through Ukraine into Slovakia dipped slightly, pipeline operator data showed.

Exit flows at the Yamal, Mallnow metering point on the German border stood at 1,409,111 kilowatt hours (kWh) per hour between 0800 CET and 0900 CET, compared to around 1,387,000 earlier in the morning, Gascade data showed.

Nominations, or requests, for Russian gas into Slovakia from Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point stood at 37.1 million cubic metres (mcm), down from 39.4 mcm the previous day, Ukrainian transmission system data showed.

Russia's Gazprom said it will ship 41.6 million cubic metres of gas to Europe via Ukraine, a volume broadly in line with recent days.

Data from the operator Nord Stream AG showed gas flows via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, which crosses the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany, were zero.

The pipeline was shut on Aug. 31 for what was supposed to be three days of maintenance but has not reopened, with Moscow blaming the situation on Western sanctions and technical issues.


Russia said it was unable to restart the pipeline which has since been damaged by suspected sabotage
