The Yamal pipeline, which normally transports Russian natural gas through Poland to Western Europe, continues in reverse mode on Wednesdays. The gas thus flows from west to east, operating in this mode for the 16th day. The latest data from the German gas network operator Gascade pointed this out. However, a significant change occurred in the gas flow, which fell sharply.

According to Gascade, according to data from the Mallnow measuring station on the German-Polish border, gas flowed from Germany to Poland on Wednesday in an hourly volume of less than 1.7 million kilowatt hours. In comparison, on Tuesday (January 4) it reached well over 9 million kWh / h.

It was Tuesday’s high volumes of gas transported east that raised concerns about European raw material reserves during the winter months. This was reflected in gas prices in Europe, which rose by about 30% on Tuesday.
