German Chancellor Mueller added that
his country should reduce its gas exports by 20% to neighboring countries,
and work to import between 10 to 15 gigawatts. An hour of gas to meet the shortage.


Natural gas prices are rising.

For the third time during the past week,
as a result of fears of an interruption in supplies of Russian gas,
prices rose again, and according to expectations,
the current rise in gas prices will continue for a while,
and within the framework of the plan,
European countries seek to try to fill the reservoirs with about 71% of their capacity
in order to meet the expected deficit in Winter.

Gas futures rose by 5.9% during the past week,
which caused an increase in prices after Russia’s decision to reduce gas supplies
that pass through the main Stream pipeline to 20% of its capacity.
