Gas stores reach 65%
Hungary's gas stores contained 4 billion cubic metres by early October, reaching almost 65% capacity, the state-owned Hungarian Electricity Works (MVM) said today.
Levels are up about 38% over last year's highest point, MVM noted.
MVM said the latest element in its reserves policy was a logistics contract with Gazprom Export. This allowed MVM to keep up to a further 700 million cubic metres of gas in the stores. About 135 million cubic metres of this gas has already been delivered.
Despite Russian-Ukrainian conflict, gas deliveries from Russia have not been interrupted, MVM also noted.
