Thus, in the course of trading on October 14, quotations rose to $ 1,225 per thousand cubic meters.
Note that last week gas prices on the European ICE stock exchange fell to $ 1,110.
Prior to that, the price of gas on the European futures market set another record. For the first time in history, it exceeded $ 1,900 per thousand cubic meters.
It is worth noting that gas prices are growing against the background of low reserves in underground storage facilities in Europe.
Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that his country is not using energy as a weapon against Europe and that Russia stands ready to help in the current energy crisis. Putin said this on Wednesday in an interview with CNBC during a panel discussion at Russian Energy Week in Moscow.
“We are not using any weapons. Even during the hardest parts of the Cold War Russia regularly has fulfilled its contractual obligations and supplies gas to Europe,” he said.
