The weather, which has turned wintry again, will not pose a threat due to the safe heating supply of Hungarian consumers, the Ministry of Energy Affairs announced on its Facebook page.
In the post, the ministry stated, "We will be able to heat without disturbance even if it is freezing."
The ministry explained that thanks to proper winter preparations, Hungary started the heating season with gas reserves taking up almost the entire storage capacity.
"The domestic gas storage capacity is now around 86%, at the level it was last at in mid-August. By the end of the summer, we reached 90%, which, according to the EU regulations, should only be achieved by November. From the capacity that peaked at over 98%, despite the prolonged withdrawal, the remaining amount still exceeds the European average," the ministry wrote.
