Answering questions of the media he explained that the country's consumption decreased by 6-7 Mm3 with restriction category I, and a further 1-2 Mm3 with restriction category II.
Dr János Zsuga repeated the information relesed after the meeting of the Foreign Affairs Committee: the strategic gas storage of Szőreg is at the disposal of the system operator, from which the country can get 3.6 Mm3 natural gas per day.
Taking into account the resources at our disposal the daily maximum quantity of available natural gas:
