Energy crisis: the price of European natural gas rises above 200 euros again

The price of European natural gas has risen again amid renewed tensions between Russia and the West. On Wednesday morning, the price of the TTF futures contract for Dutch natural gas rose by around nine percent to around 213 euros per megawatt hour.

The TTF contract serves as a guideline for the European price level. The price had tended to fall since mid-September, albeit from a high level.

The trigger for the recent price increase is likely to be the declaration of partial mobilization by Russian President Vladimir Putin because of the Ukraine war. The already uncertain prospects for Europe's gas supply in winter are thus becoming even more uncertain.

Russia has suspended supplies through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline over alleged technical problems. On Wednesday it became known that the federal government wants to largely nationalize the energy company Uniper, which is suffering from the gas crisis.
