Germany announced its readiness to share gas from storage facilities with neighboring countries

Since no European country can deal with the energy crisis alone, Germany is ready to share gas from its storage facilities with its EU neighbors. This was announced on Monday, June 27, by Vice-Chancellor of Germany, Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection Robert Habek before a meeting of the EU Energy Council in Luxembourg.

“The gas market is already very heavily regulated at the pan-European level,” he added. “No country can be left to itself.”


Therefore, Germany is now trying to fill its storage facilities in order to supply not only itself, but also neighboring countries.

“The Czech Republic, Austria, under certain circumstances Poland, France will then need our support, as well as vice versa,” the minister stressed.


In his opinion, Europe must remain united, since an energy crisis in one country will provoke the same situation in its neighbors. “We depend on solidarity,” says Habek.


The vice-chancellor assessed the situation with Germany’s gas supply as “not bad” because “it is provided.” “In recent days, it has been possible to fill storage facilities, albeit not in the same volumes as before the reduction in gas flows through Nord Stream,” the minister added. At the same time, he said that one should not succumb to self-deception and think about the coming winter.
