Gas supplies from Russia to France have grown by almost 1.5 times since the beginning of the year, and reserves in French underground gas storage facilities have dropped below 30%.
This is stated in the message of “Gazprom”.
“The demand for natural gas in European countries continues to grow against the background of a cold, frosty winter, and the occupancy of European underground storage facilities continues to decline. According to Gas Infrastructure Europe, gas reserves in French underground storage facilities have dropped below 30%,” Gazprom reports.
