IHP Nord Stream的西部分配IHP NEL的工作量也在增长。但这还不足以弥补IHP OPAL的损失，IHP OPAL是IHP Nord Stream东部陆地的延续。周末，输气管道的输气量下降了25%，仅略高于2500万立方米/天。IHP NEL的负荷增加了11%(约750万立方米/天)。因此，上周末IHP Nord Stream的负荷下降了1770万立方米/天(按年计算为65亿立方米)。

Gazprom reduces the load of the Nord Stream and increases gas transit through Ukraine
Brussels, Neftegaz.RU. Gazprom increases gas transit through the gas transmission system (GTS) of Ukraine after restricting access to the capacities of the OPAL trunk gas pipeline by decision of an EU court.
So, according to the Slovak operator Eustream, the application for pumping gas through the Velke Kapusany gas metering station, which is the border point between Slovakia and Ukraine, increased to 154.7 million m 3 on September 16, 2019.
The workload of IHP NEL, the western allotment from IHP Nord Stream, is also growing. But this is not enough to compensate for the lost capacity of IHP OPAL - the eastern land continuation of IHP Nord Stream. Pumping through the gas pipeline decreased by 25% over the weekend, to just over 25 million m 3 / day. The load of IHP NEL increased by 11% (by almost 7.5 million m 3 / day). Thus, the load of IHP Nord Stream decreased last weekend by 17.7 million m 3 / day (6.5 billion m 3 in annual terms).
In order to make up for this shortage during the filling of underground gas storage facilities, Gazprom was forced to increase the load on the Ukrainian route. This is unprofitable for Gazprom, since Ukrainian transit is one of the most expensive routes, and the technical condition of the Ukrainian GTS leaves much to be desired, which means large gas losses during transportation. But in conditions of active gas injection into European UGS facilities, Gazprom has no other options.
Until the end of 2019, Gazprom will pump at least 11.4 billion m 3 of gas into its UGS facilities in Europe, which is more than 2 times higher than the level of 2018, and Gazprom’s European partners and Ukrainian Naftogaz are actively forming reserves. All this is done due to the fact that on December 31, 2019 the contract for the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Ukraine expires, and a new contract has not yet been signed.
