Romania's authorities struggling to satisfy increased demand in gas

Romania's authorities struggling to satisfy increased demand in gas
 

Review Hari Stefanatos

Romania's gas imports have tripled in the last few days, compared a normal winter period, because of the deterioration of the weather conditions during the last week. The local agency Agerpres reports that Gas Dispatch is on alert struggling to maintain the balance between the population and industry.

Information from Gas Dispatch say that “we are currently on alert and we try to maintain the system in balance. We always watch the map and the gas pressure". They warn however that the country's gas production and the extraction from deposits is at its maximum, so problems might arise at any moment. At the moment the only way to balance the system is to import gas from Russia.

The national consumption was of around 62 million cubic meters on January 28, up 24% compared to a normal winter day, when the consumption stays at around 50 million cubic meters, resulting in an increase in imports to some 11 million cubic meters, compared to 4-5 million on a normal winter day.

The internal production was of 27.6 million cubic meters on January 28, while 24 million cubic meters were extracted from deposits.
