No reduction of gas supplies to heat producers yet

Heat producers in Slovakia have not yet experienced any reduction in natural gas supplies.

Heat producers in Slovakia have not yet experienced any reduction in natural gas supplies.

"None of the members of the Slovak Association of Heat Producers (SZVT) has reported any reduction in their supply of natural gas supply," the chairman of the association, Miroslav Obšívaný, announced. He added that central heating plants were continuing to operate without restriction, the SITA newswire reported.

The SZVT did not want to comment on the future development of the situation. The association groups 78 heat producers out of the 450 operating in Slovakia. They generate heat, in the form of steam and heated water, centrally for large housing and industrial units and other customers.

The supply of natural gas from Russia to Slovakia ceased on Tuesday night (January 6/7). Slovakia's gas utility SPP says that a state of emergency is still in effect and that ‘level 8’ regulations limiting consumption remained in place. Level 8 means that industrial customers with contracts for more than 633 MWh (over 60,000 cubic metres) of natural gas have to reduce their consumption to the minimum safe level.

Gas for household heating remains unlimited, and is currently being supplied from underground gas reservoirs. SITA
