Russia continues to turn off the gas supply to France. The Gazprom group justifies this with different opinions on the details of the contract. The customer Engie is unimpressed.
The Russian Gazprom group has further reduced its gas supplies to France. According to Gazprom, the French supplier Engie has been informed that deliveries will be curtailed later in the day. The reason is a "disagreement about the application of contracts," according to a statement from the company.
Gazprom had already sharply reduced its supplies to Engie since the start of the Ukraine war. According to Engie, it received 1.5 terawatt hours of gas per month until the new cut. At the end of July, that was around four percent of the amount that Engie purchases each month. According to the company, it supplies customers in Europe with more than 400 terawatt hours per year.
The group says it has taken steps to offset cuts in supplies from Russia. You have secured enough gas to be able to meet your obligations and your own needs.
Gazprom is currently delivering around 20 percent of the possible volume to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline. On Wednesday, the Russian group wants to completely stop delivery due to maintenance work. According to Gazprom, they should last three days.
