By bne IntelliNews June 24, 2010
Consumers in Poland are receiving natural gas in line with their needs in the face of the gas dispute of Russia and Belarus, the country's natural gas producer PGNiG and gas transmission operator Gas-System have announced in a joint communiqu. The decrease of natural gas pressure in deliveries from Belarus through cross-border point in Vysokoye was noticed in the afternoon hours on Jun 23, 2010. After 5 p.m. local time the pressure returned to the usual level, they reported. As a result, the amount of natural gas delivered via Vysokoye cross-border point will reach the level stated in the contract within the next twenty four hours. "Above-mentioned changes did not affect consumers in Poland as they were receiving natural gas in line with their needs," the release reads. PGNiG undertakes necessary steps so in case of emergency the additional amounts of natural gas are delivered to cross-border point in Drozdovitche on the Polish-Ukrainian border. It will allow to maintain the level of natural gas deliveries stated in the contract, it also reported. Meanwhile, the EC's energy commissioner Guenther Oettinger said he was strongly concerned about the cuts in gas supply to Lithuania, following the Russia-Belarus gas dispute. Lithuanian authorities confirmed that Russian gas supplies via Belarus decreased by around 50% on Jun 23. On Monday, Russian gas company Gazprom decided to cut gas supplies to Belarus claiming an outstanding debt of USD 190mn. tom
