Gas prices in Europe continue to rise

Russia did not supply enough fuel to the European market, which ultimately led to higher prices. And in the event of a cold winter, there may not be enough gas.

Europe faces a gas shortage this coming winter. This was stated by Amos Gokstein, senior adviser on energy security at the US State Department, reports Financial Times.

According to him, this is due to the fact that Russia did not supply enough fuel to the European market, which ultimately led to an increase in prices for the resource.

“If there is a real cold winter in January and February, you may run out of supplies. And that worries me,” said Gokstein.

He noted that Europe is starting a new winter period also with the threat of reduced supplies. The official added that the US is concerned about Europe’s dependence on energy supplies from Russia.

“This is not only about geopolitical games,” the official stressed, adding that people’s lives are at stake.

It was previously reported that gas prices set a new high… Last week in Europe during the auction the gas price exceeded $ 710 per thousand cubic meters.

Meanwhile, Gazprom announced on completion of construction of SP-2… The construction of the Russian gas pipeline was completed on the morning of September 10, the company said.
