So far, not everything is safe with gas injection in Europe

Alexey Belogoryev, Deputy Principal Director on Energy Studies at the Institute for Energy and Finance, commented to RIA Novosti about the start of the season for gas injection into EU underground gas storage facilities.

He noted that UGSF in Europe this year switched to the regime of predominant gas injection very early, when the seasonal minimum of reserves was reached (25.51% of the nominal active volume). This dynamics was interrupted from March 31 to April 5 due to a sharp cooling. For comparison, the expert says, in 2021, the minimum level fell on an abnormally late period - April 19-20.

At the same time, he notes, the main problem is hardly related to the fact that there is not enough Russian gas. The obstacle is rather in the high cost of blue fuel as such.
