Even though natural gas supplies from Russia have not resumed, Slovak gas utility SPP is managing to keep Slovakia's gas delivery system stable, SPP press communications department specialist Lubomir Tuchscher told TASR newswire on January 12.

SPP is providing households, hospitals and schools with gas from underground reserves in Slovakia and from the resources of SPP's foreign shareholders, E.ON Ruhrgas and Gaz de France Suez, said Tuchscher. He added that the 8th regulation limitation level for large consumers continues to remain in force on January 13.

"To help Slovak industry we will be able to restore the basic 3rd regulation level as soon as gas from Russia reaches the compressor station at Veľké Kapušany (Košice region). The gas-delivery network in Slovakia is in good condition, with enough pressure to renew gas supplies," said SPP CEO Bernd Wagner on January 11, appealing to large consumers to act responsibly, wrote TASR.
