Energy – Gazprom fills its gas storage facilities – Economy

Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has started the announced resupply of European gas storage facilities. The company approved a plan to supply gas to five underground facilities in November, according to a statement on Tuesday. The implementation of the plan has already started. In view of the current energy crisis in Europe, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the state-owned company at the end of October to increase deliveries to Germany and Austria. Gazprom boss Alexej Miller said at the time that it would be possible after November 8 – as soon as Russian stores were full. Critics accuse Gazprom of failing to respond to increasing European demand. It was suspected that the Russian side wanted to force the rapid commissioning of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea.
