The supply of all the consumers – public, communal and industrial – is ensured, no interruption or restriction is required.
Hungary’s estimated gas consumption today (29/04/2009) is 20-21 Mm3. This is the usual amount for this time of the year. The gas resources are available from domestic production, storages and from import capacity. The volume of import natural gas for today is being negotiated with Ukrtransgaz, the Ukrainian transmission company. Yesterday the Ukrainian transmission company confirmed only the volume from Russian Gazprom resources to be transmitted to Hungary. The full confirmed volume 5Mm3, was delivered at the contractual pressure. The unconfirmed and undelivered amount was compensated from optional natural gas resources available at the domestic market by the FGSZ Ltd. All domestic consumers were fully supplied.
The resource-consumption balance of Hungary is stable. In case the resource of any of the dealers is not available, the FGSZ Ltd. –as stipulated by the relevant laws – will ensure the resource- consumption balance with using the optional gas resources offered by the trade licensees. The supply of all the consumers – public, communal and industrial – is ensured, no interruption or restriction is required.
