Gas flows to the east via the Yamal pipeline and flows via Ukraine remain stable

LONDON, Nov 18 (Reuters) – Eastward gas flows via the Yamal-Europe pipeline to Poland from Germany and gas flows from Russia to Europe via Ukraine were steady on Friday morning, according to operator data.

Outflows at the Mallnow metering point on the Yamal pipeline’s German border were 6.264 million kilowatt hours (kWh) per hour between 0800 CET and 0900 CET, similar to levels seen over the previous 24 hours, according to Gascade data.

Nominations of Russian gas to Slovakia from Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point amounted to 37.6 million cubic meters (mcm), down slightly from 41 mcm the previous day, according to data from the Ukrainian transport system.

Russia’s Gazprom said it would ship 41.9 million cubic meters of gas to Europe via Ukraine on Friday, levels similar to those reported in recent days.

Gas flows via the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, which crosses the Baltic Sea to Germany from Russia, remained zero.

The pipeline has not reopened since it was closed Aug. 31 for what was expected to be three days of maintenance.

Moscow blamed the shutdown on Western sanctions and technical issues. The pipeline has since been damaged by suspected sabotage. (Reporting by Susanna Twidale; Editing by Jan Harvey)
