European households may freeze this winter even if natural gas reserves in tanks are very high, the head of Gazprom has warned.
Alexei Miller, speaking at the Russian Energy Week in Moscow, noted that an unusual wave of low temperatures in winter, lasting even five days, is capable of freezing entire cities. Citing analysis, he said that during peak demand days, Europe could be deprived of around 800 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.
“It is clear that the energy crisis in Europe will not last a short time,” Miller said, expressing his belief that in the coming winters Europe will struggle to bring its reserves to the same level. He even mentioned that the natural gas that Germany has in its underground storage tanks is enough for 2-2.5 months.
He also repeated the proposal made earlier in the same conference by Russian President Vladimir Putin for the creation of a natural gas energy hub in Turkey that will be destined for Europe. Miller also said that the damage to the Nord Stream pipelines will take at least a year to repair, and that Russia still does not have access to the damaged area.
