Statement on current storage levels
Storage levels are unusually low this year, which, in combination with the current high gas prices, is attracting a lot of media attention. As we repeatedly receive concerned enquiries about the reasons for the current tense situation on the gas market, we would like to point out here that we are prohibited by law from acquiring and storing our own gas for the purpose of supplying gas customers. Our role as storage operator is to provide the cavity for gas storage and to ensure the proper operation of the storage facilities. This year, as in previous years, we are fulfilling these tasks with the utmost care and commitment. We have no influence on the actual quantities of gas stored and thus on the level of the reservoirs.
