Gazprom cuts gas supply to French company Engie alleging non-payment
Russian state gas company Gazprom supply has been cut off from gas to the French energy company Engie from this Thursday, justifying his decision that the company has not paid the amounts due for July supply.
Gazprom already had reduced this week the flow of gas towards the French energy company. Engie herself assured that the reason was a “disagreement between the parties on the application of some contracts.”
Gazprom supply had decreased substantially since the beginning of the war in Ukraineat the end of last February, with a recent monthly flow of about 1.5 TWh, compared to Engie’s total annual supplies in Europe of over 400 TWh.
“At the end of August 30, Gazprom Export has not received all payments for the gas supplied to the French company Engie in July under the current contracts”, the Russian company has indicated.
Due to current Russian regulations, Gazprom ensures that must cut off any supply from this September 1 until full payments are received.
Last week, the European Commission reported thathe European Union as a whole had its gas reserves at 76.92% capacity. France is one of the countries with the best levels, with up to 90% capacity, compared to 82% in Spain or 80.5% in Germany.
