Russian piped gas exports to Europe up 3.6% m/m in June

(Reuters) - Pipeline natural gas exports to Europe by Russia's Gazprom in June rose by 3.6% from May despite repair work on the TurkStream pipeline, according to Reuters calculations on Friday based on volumes supplied via Ukraine and TurkStream.

The Sudzha metering point on the Russia-Ukraine border as well as the TurkStream pipeline that crosses the Black Sea are the only functioning routes for piping Russian gas to Europe.

Average daily pipeline exports in June rose to 66.8 million cubic meters (mcm) from 64.5 mcm in May, according to calculations based on data from European gas transmission group Entsog and Gazprom's daily reports on gas transits via Ukraine.

Gazprom has suspended the disclosure of its exports data. The company did not reply to a request for comment.

Gazprom's total natural gas supplies to the European Union stood at around 2 billion cubic meters (bcm) in June, the same as in May.

TurkStream was halted for maintenance June 5-12.

Russia's piped gas exports to Europe stand at around 12.1 bcm for the first half of the year. They totaled 62 bcm for the whole of 2022.
