The European Union and its member countries are on the right track to continue helping Russia’s gas independence and sustainable path. This time, it has been the president of the European Commission (EC), Ursula von der Leyen, who has come out to celebrate that the EU’s gas storage is now at 90% of its capacity, more than two months before from the legal deadline of November 1 that Member States have to reach that figure.

“EU gas storage has reached 90% well ahead of need. This will help keep us safe this winter. Together, we are freeing ourselves from Russian gas and continue to work in parallel on more diverse energy sources for the future “Von der Leyen said on his X account (before Twitter).

EU gas storage has reached 90%, well ahead of schedule.

This will help us to be safe this winter.

Together, we are getting rid of Russian gas.

And we continue to work in parallel on more diverse energy supplies for the future.#REPowerEU

The Twenty-seven agreed in 2022, after the Russian war began in Ukraine, to force themselves to load the warehouses to 80% before November 1, 2022 and to 90% on the same date as of 2023 for fear that the president Russian, Vladimir Putin, definitively closed the supply of gas to the EU and the bloc was not ready.

Last year, 90% was exceeded at the beginning of October and, after a particularly warm winter in Europe, deposits stood at 56% at the end of March 2023, above the 40% threshold that was critical at that time. date to be able to recharge without straits. A rate, in addition, much higher than the 25.66% at the end of last winter, a few weeks after Russia will invade Ukraine.
