The European Union’s gas warehouses exceeded an average storage level of 90%, above the 80% set by the EU bloc as an objective to guarantee a safe volume in autumn and winter, in the context of the uncertainty related to supplies from Russia, reports the agency EFE. The deposits are at an average of 90.12%, according to the sector association Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE). The degree of filling exceeds that of the similar period last year, which was 75%. Community regulations do not require member states to have gas deposits (as is the case with oil, where it is mandatory to have reserves for 90 days of consumption), and the 160 installations of the 18 community states with deposits contain a total of 1,002 TWh of gas.
