Data from Gascade, the German network operator, showed that Friday’s Yamal-Europe pipeline was flowing east from Germany towards Poland for the 18th consecutive day. However, it flowed at slightly lower levels than Thursday.
Eastbound volumes were 6.7 million kilowatt-hours an hour (kWh/h) down from 7.5 million on Thursday, according to data from the Mallnow metering station at the German-Polish border.
Analysts at Refinitiv reported that additional capacity was again booked in the opposite direction, from Germany to Poland, at a day-ahead sale.
The long-term effects of reverse flow have raised concerns about winter gas supply in Europe, higher costs, and political tensions with Russia. Russia has repeatedly stated that it is fulfilling all its contractual obligations.
It accounts for approximately one-sixth of Russia’s annual gas exports to Europe, Turkey and Europe.
Friday marked the first trading day since Dec. 29, when the front-month gas contract on TTF hub in the Netherlands – a European benchmark for oil prices – was above 100 euro.
It was trading at 103 Euros per megawatt-hour (MWh), by 0740 GMT.
The capacity nominations for Russian Gas Flows from Ukraine to Slovakia via Velke Kapusany Border Point, another important route for Russian gas to Europe, were also reduced on Friday. They remain at low levels overall.
The number of nominations was 290,259 megawatts (MWh) per daily, slightly lower than Thursday’s levels, and far below the levels of more than 900,000. This data came from Eustream, the Slovakian pipeline operator.
