Running Out of Gas
Poland Reports Gazprom Supply Disruption
show comments
  • Strictly speaking, it’s not that Gazprom is cutting supplies to Poland in absolute terms. Gazprom is refusing to fulfill Poland’s legitimate request for an increased flow, according to the Russian daily *Kommersant*. Apparently, demand for gas has grown this week in Poland due to colder weather. Accordingly, Poland asked Gazprom for higher flow rates and when Gazprom refused, Poland had to cut exports to Ukraine to serve domestic customers. Basically Gazprom is saying, “We’re going to supply enough gas for your own consumption but will make sure you don’t have any extra for reexport to Ukraine.”
