Germany may call next stage in gas emergency plan in next 5-10 days
(Reuters) - Germany is preparing the second phase in its three-stage gas emergency plan and could officially launch it within the next 5-10 days, newspaper Die Welt said on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.
The second so-called alarm stage, which would be announced by Germany's economy ministry, enables utilities to pass on gas costs, which have risen significantly in the wake of Moscow's invasion of Ukraine, to customers.
The economy ministry did not immediately reply to an emailed request for comment.

Modern society would not be possible without the use of pipelines to transport natural gas, crude oil and finished products to demand centers.
Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
