Energy crisis: Gas storage fill level reaches 85 percent

According to the Federal Ministry of Economics, the filling levels of the gas storage facilities in Germany have exceeded the 85 percent mark. The ministry announced this on Twitter on Sunday. The same comes from data published on Sunday on the website of the European gas storage operators: According to this, the storage facilities were 85.02 percent full last Friday (September 2nd).

This means that the target set by a regulation by the Federal Government of at least 85 percent fill level by October 1st has been achieved well in advance. However, at least in theory, the fill levels can drop again.

The Russian energy company Gazprom announced on Friday evening that it would no longer route gas through the Nord Stream 1 Baltic Sea pipeline, citing a technical defect in the Portovaya compressor station. The managing director of the Initiative Energies Storage (INES) industry association, Sebastian Bleschke, then announced that the storage facilities would continue to be filled.

Germany now receives significantly more gas from Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands than was supplied by Nord Stream 1 before the delivery stop. In the event of a permanent failure of the Russian gas supply, the next target of 95 percent on November 1st can still only be reached with great effort, said Bleschke.
