LAST UPDATE: 10.32
French energy company Engie announced today that Russian state-owned Gazprom has informed it of a further and immediate reduction in natural gas deliveries “due to a dispute between the parties on the implementation of contracts”.
Russian gas deliveries to Engie had already been significantly reduced following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the French company said in a statement.
However, the company emphasized that it has already implemented measures in order to be able to serve its customers even in the event of a complete interruption of the natural gas supply from Gazprom.
Last Thursday the filling of natural gas reserves in France for the winter had exceeded the 90% mark, according to the European platform Aggregated gas Storage Inventory (AGSI), and the country is on track to reach the 100% target as In November.
French government spokesman Olivier Verand confirmed to Franceinfo radio today that the target would be reached “by the end of the summer”, but warned that this did not mean France would have “enough gas to get through the winter if the Russians cut it off or if we consume too much”.
