In the near future, Denmark may face a “real crisis of gas supply,” writes the local newspaper DR.
The fact is that the rise in gas prices makes its production too expensive for Danish companies. As a result, goods become more expensive, which eventually hits the pockets of ordinary citizens.
“Make no mistake, we have a very serious situation, and we may get into a real gas supply crisis,” says Troels Ranis, industry director of the Confederation of Danish Industry.
According to the publication, already in 2022-2023, more than 50 companies may be completely or partially disconnected from gas supply, which may lead to the closure of these enterprises.
DR also writes that residents of the country should not be “mistaken” about the current situation. The publication warns that there is a “very serious situation” in Denmark
Since June 16, Gazprom has reduced the pumping of gas through the Nord Stream to 67 million cubic meters per day with a planned figure of 167 million cubic meters. The reason was technical problems at the Portovaya compressor station, as well as delays in the work of Siemens, which could not deliver the necessary turbines on time.
