Reserves in five Hungarian gas storage facilities have reached 3.88 billion cubic meters by August 25, some 227 million cubic meters more than would be necessary by November 1 based on the European Union's gas storage regulations, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utilities Regulatory Office (MEKH) said on Monday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Gas reserves currently equal 37.17% of the past five years' annual average consumption, compared to the necessary 35%, and could cover 98% of households annual needs, MEKH said.
Hungary is in fourth place in the EU in terms of reserves in proportion to consumption, MEKH noted.
Gas reserves are at 61.3% of total capacity, it added.
