Gascade data showed that the flow of eastbound natural gas through Russia’s Yamal Europe pipeline increased fourfold on Friday as they travelled to Poland. This was despite a Russian attack against Ukraine.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the increased flows were due to developments in Ukraine. This is another important route for Russian gas exports into Europe. Gazprom, Russia’s state gas company, said that its gas exports to Europe via Ukraine were not affected.
The Russian westbound gas supply to Europe and Turkey is usually about 15% through the pipeline linking Poland and Germany. However, it has been in reverse since December and driving up European gas prices
After President Vladimir Putin’s declaration of war, Russia launched an invasion by land and air as well as by sea. As explosions and gunfire rocked major towns, around 100,000 people fled. Reports indicate that at least dozens of people were killed.
Putin stated earlier this week that Russia will continue to supply gas to the world’s markets.
For the tenth week, Yamal-Europe pipeline flows continued to flow in reverse mode.
Gas supplies from Germany and Poland via the Mallnow Metering Point were at 2.92 Million Kilowatt Hours per Hour (kWh/h on Friday), up from 700,000 kWh/h in earlier hours.
Up to Saturday morning, there will be renominations or bids to flow gas from Germany and Poland at a rate of approximately 2.9 million kWh/h.
Gazprom can order pipeline capacity via daily auctions but has not yet ordered transit capacity for February or March via the route.
It didn’t book capacity for the second or third quarters of the previous year, and it has no plans to sell spot gas on its electronic platform this week.
The capacity nominations for another major route for Russian deliveries into Europe, the supply to Slovakia via Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point, rose to 796.815 MWh, from 622.676 MWh Thursday when nominations had sharply increased.
