gas from Ukraine, but we received 4.7 Mcm from Austria for domestic use,
2.7 Mcm was transmitted to Serbia and 1.2 Mcm to Bosnia-Herzegovina.
There was further 2 Mcm transmitted Serbia from domestic production.
The expected gas consumption for today is 56-58 Mcm.
The maximum 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 agreement about their availability is finished.
The available resources ensure the resource-consumption balance for today without any consumer restriction.
The Hungarian transmission system is ready to receive the gas
delivery from Ukraine, however the FGSZ Ltd did not receive any official
notification until 07.00 a.m. on Monday either from the Ukrainian or
the Russian dispatcher charges. The FGSZ Ltd is continuously analysing
the situation and is prepared to change the approach to gas supply.
