Saxony-Anhalt: Minister takes a critical view of speculation about the gas supply situation

Magdeburg (dpa/sa) - Saxony-Anhalt's Energy Minister Armin Willingmann (SPD) has called for a prudent consideration of the gas supply. He advises against public speculation about the supply situation, said Willingmann on Thursday. "In the past few weeks, such panicked proposals and scenarios have driven up gas prices in particular - to the detriment of all of us." It is much more important to take the necessary steps to further secure the energy supply.

Willingmann described the resumption of gas deliveries through Nord Stream 1 as “good news for the energy supply in Germany and Europe”. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin could continue to use gas supplies as a tactical tool. "In Moscow, too, the special sensitivity of the Germans on this issue is well known." It is therefore important "to diversify and stabilize gas supplies and to fill our storage facilities".

After ten days of maintenance work, gas deliveries through Nord Stream 1 were restarted on Thursday morning. However, only 40 percent of the transport capacities were used.
