Gas prices in Europe for the first time in history exceeded a thousand dollars


MOSCOW, 28 Sep. Gas prices on the European futures market at the opening of trading for the first time in history exceeded a thousand dollars per thousand cubic meters, it follows from ICE Futures data. Thus, futures on the Dutch TTF index (the most liquid European hub) started at $ 992 and by 10:10 Moscow time reached an all-time high of almost $ 1,030; the previous record was recorded on September 15, when the price per thousand cubic meters rose to $ 963.9. The cost of fuel in Europe in recent weeks has soared more than one and a half times – on September 1, gas was traded at $ 614 per thousand cubic meters. Analysts believe that this is due to concerns about a possible shortage due to the low occupancy of European gas storage facilities. In addition, the increased demand was driven by economic recovery and weather factors, as well as competition for LNG with Asia and limited supplies of the largest European supplier, Gazprom.
