RUSSIAN GAS FOR EUROPE DOWN

RUSSIAN GAS FOR EUROPE DOWN

- AUGUST 9, 2022 - Russia’s natural gas exports by pipeline to the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK) declined by almost 40% during the first seven months of 2022 compared with the same period in 2021 and by almost 50% compared with the previous five-year (2017–21) average, according to data from Refinitiv Eikon. In mid-July 2022, exports declined to 1.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), the lowest level in nearly 40 years. Between 2016 and 2020, Russia had accounted for about one-third of the EU’s and the UK’s supply of natural gas via pipeline, according to Eurostat.

Russia exports natural gas to the EU and the UK through three major pipeline corridors, which account for approximately 16.0 Bcf/d of import pipeline capacity when combined with smaller interconnections, according to data from Gazprom:

Offshore (underwater Baltic Sea) pipeline Nord Stream 1 into Germany (at entry point Greifswald) and further to the Netherlands, France, the UK, and other European countries

Via Belarus to Poland (at entry point Kondratki) and Germany (at entry point Mallnow, the westernmost point of the Yamal pipeline)

Via Ukraine to Slovakia (at entry point Velke Kapusany), where the natural gas pipeline branches out to the Czech Republic and Austria, transporting natural gas further to countries in northern and southern Europe

Russia’s natural gas pipeline exports to the EU and the UK have been declining since 2020, initially as a result of reduced demand in Europe because of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. In mid-2021, Russia began to limit its natural gas exports to Europe to long-term contracted volumes only and ended spot-market sales. Russia’s natural gas exports to the EU and the UK averaged 16.0 Bcf/d in 2019, 12.4 Bcf/d in 2020, and 10.9 Bcf/d in 2021.

The most significant decline in Russia’s exports has been into Germany via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline. Exports on Nord Stream 1 declined to 1.4 Bcf/d in July, only 20% of its design capacity of 5.6 Bcf/d. Russia’s deliveries to Germany (via Belarus and Poland) at Mallnow also declined significantly, starting in October 2021.

Pipeline flows from Russia into Slovakia averaged 1.8 Bcf/d so far in 2022, compared with the previous five-year average of 4.2 Bcf/d for the same period. Pipeline flows declined, in part, because a natural gas compressor station located in Ukraine was taken offline. Russia’s natural gas deliveries into Poland and neighboring countries via Belarus averaged 0.9 Bcf/d from January 2021 through April 2022, declining to 0.2 Bcf/d since then.

To compensate for lower natural gas pipeline exports from Russia, the EU and the UK have been importing record-high volumes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) this year, particularly from the United States.
