MOSCOW, July 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian gas giant Gazprom has not received any notices OPAL gas pipeline capacities auction, a company representative told PRIME on Tuesday.
Earlier, a source familiar with the matter told PRIME that the decision on the pipeline’s status can be made by Tuesday’s evening. The capacity auction should also be held on Tuesday.
The OPAL, whose capacity is 36 billion cubic meters, is plugged into Russia’s Nord Stream undersea export pipeline and stretches along Germany’s eastern border. Under the E.U.’s third energy package, Gazprom is limited to use only 50% of its capacities.
On June 16, Mario Mehren, head of the Russian department of Wintershall, an oil and natural gas subsidiary of German chemical giant BASF, told PRIME that the European Commission will decide OPAL’s status by July 14.
