Russian gas imports back to normal on Thursday, uncertain on Friday

The natural gas imports from Russia will return to normal levels on Thursday, but we cannot know what will happen from Friday, Romanian Minister-delegate for Energy Razvan Nicolescu told a conference organized by Bursa Press Group on Tuesday.
He stressed that curbing gas deliveries was a strange decision of Russia, but also a game one will have to get used to.
‘We must get used to this strange decision of Gazprom and take things calmly. I do not rule out that this on-off cut game should continue. It is a game seeking to make us nervous and those who play such games will lose a lot in terms of credibility’, Nicolescu said.
The minister had announced on Monday that the deliveries of Russian gas to Romania will be cut by 10 percent Tuesday through Sunday and explained the people will not have to suffer even in the event of extreme winter. At present, Romania has 2.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas in store and will have 2.8 billion at the end of the storage cycle, up from 1.8 billion cubic meters, the amount estimated as sufficient for this winter by Energy Regulatory Authority.
