Press Release - Siófok, 15 January 2009 07.30
Wednesday Hungary's gas consumption was 58 Mcm thanks to the
unexpectedly mild weather. This made us possible to reduce the volume of
exploiting the underground storages in order to retain their peak
capacity. There wasn't any incoming gas from Ukraine, but we received 4
Mcm from Austria for domestic use, 2.7 Mcm was transmitted to Serbia and
1 Mcm to Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The expected gas consumption for today is 54-56 Mcm.
The volume of available resources for today is 66 Mcm. 53 Mcm from
underground storages, 9 Mcm from domestic production, 4 Mcm from western
import; the availability of these resources has been confirmed.
The available resources ensure the resource-consumption balance for today.
The Hungarian transmission system is still ready to receive the gas
delivery from Ukraine, however the FGSZ Ltd has not received any
official notification so far.
