Increased gas imports from Russia

The make-up of the gas inflow forecasted by the suppliers for this month points to a 37 per cent ratio of import gas, rising by almost 10 per cent compared to December 2010, according to a document drafted by Transgaz and forwarded to the National Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE). The Authority approved a maximum import ratio of 32 per cent, after approving a 23 per cent ratio of Russian gas for last month, Money.ro reports. The total consumption estimated for this month is 21.2 million MWh, out of which 9.8 million MWh would go to households and 9.8 million to factories. Technological consumption would amount to 1.2 million MWh. “The rising consumption of import gas may be accounted for by having stored a larger portion of this type of gas last year, at the expense of locally produced gas. I don’t know whether this make-up of consumption may influence the price of gas,” Florin Cosma, director of Transgaz, stated. Gas providers estimate, for each month, a prospective make-up of the gas basket, which they forward to Transgaz. In turn, the state company forwards the estimates to ANRE, which checks the figures, does its own maths and approves or rejects the make-up.

The price of gas has remained steady for over a year. At present, it amounts to approximately EUR 310/ 1,000 cube metres.
