    1ST LEADGerman gas reserves 70% full despite reduced Russian deliveriesBy Helge Toben and Helmut Reuter, dpa

    August 5, 2022 - dpa English


      Berlin (dpa) - Germany's natural gas storage facilities are getting closer to Berlin's target of having them filled to 75% of their capacity, despite reduced deliveries from Russia.

      Germany's gas reserves were 70.4% full as of Wednesday, according to data published on Friday by Gas Infrastructure Europe on its aggregator website.

      A new law in Germany stipulates that storage facilities must be at least three-quarters full by September 1.

      Due to tensions surrounding Russia's war on Ukraine and resulting Western sanctions, Moscow has slashed deliveries of the fossil fuel natural gas to many European states, Germany included.

      The Nord Stream 1 pipeline that supplies Germany via the Baltic Sea has only been running at 20% capacity since last week.

      Meanwhile, the last freighter bringing coal from Russia to Germany is being unloaded at the northern German port of Rostock before the transition period for EU sanctions on Russian coal imports ends on August 10.

      The Russian freighter AP Jadran arrived on July 26. The coal is destined for a coal-fired power plant in Rostock.

      Manuela Schwesig, premier of the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, toured the port on Friday with the head of the Rostock port development association (HERO), Jens Aurel Scharner.
