There is a record: gas prices exceeded $ 2,000 per thousand cubic meters

The rise in gas prices is associated with a cold snap.

The exchange price of gas in Europe on December 21 for the first time exceeded 2000 dollars per thousand cubic meters. The cost of the January futures contract on TTF increased by 16% and reached 171.5 euros per MWh & # 8212; about 2004 dollars 1 thousand cubic meters, reports Chronicle.info with reference to RBK-Ukraine.

Gas rises in price in connection with the onset of severe cold weather in Europe, as well as because of the actions & # 171; Gazprom & # 187 ;.

On average, the December air temperature is expected to be 2 degrees lower than last year.

& # 171; Gazprom & # 187; refused to order transit via & # 171; Yamal-Europe & # 187; for Tuesday, in connection with which the pipeline stopped and switched to reverse mode & # 8212; from west to east.

In addition, & # 171; Gazprom & # 187; did not book additional capacities for the transit of natural gas through Ukraine for January 2021 and ordered only 21.6% of the capacities for the gas pipeline & # 171; Yamal & # 8212; Europe & # 187; through Poland.

Recall that the previous historical record was set by exchange prices for gas in Europe on October 6, when 1,000 cubic meters were sold for more than $ 1,900.

The National Bank of Ukraine expects a rapid decline in prices for gas after the end of the heating season in Europe in the spring of 2022. At the same time, the average price for the year will be quite high & # 8212; 460 dollars per thousand cubic meters.
