The flow of Russian gas towards Germany via the Yamal Europe pipeline rose over the weekend according to preliminary data from Gascade, with no indications that it has been affected by the political standoff between Belarusian and European Union.
Alexander Lukashenko, the Belarusian President, stated that he could stop Russian gas flowing through Belarus to Europe as part of a dispute with the EU. The statement briefly drove spot gas prices higher.
The Kremlin quickly responded that Lukashenko hadn’t consulted it before considering the possibility of cutting off gas supplies via Belarus. Gazprom, Russia’s state gas pipeline Gazprom, owns the gas transportation infrastructure.
On Saturday, President Vladimir Putin stated that such an action would harm relations between Minsk (and its key ally Moscow) and that he would talk to Lukashenko about the matter.
The data showed that the hourly flow into Germany from the Mallnow metering station, which is located on the Polish border, was over 10,000,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) on Saturday, and Sunday. This was an increase of around 6,500,000 kWh/h on Friday.
The preliminary data indicated that exit flows at Mallnow, or gas transportation to Poland from Germany were zero.
