The daily delivery of natural gas to customers in Belarus by OAO Gazprom Transgaz Belarus has set a new record — 102 million m3 per day, the company’s public relations and mass media communications office told BelTA on February 5.
The record was set on 30 January. The same day witnessed a record high collection of natural gas from underground gas storage facilities — over 17 million m3, including 10 million m3 from the modernized underground gas storage facility in Mozyr.
Commenting on the figures, Gazprom Transgaz Belarus underlined that those are absolute records over the 50 years of history of the Belarusian gas transportation system.
The considerable increase in natural gas consumption in Russia, Belarus, and other countries is attributed to the long frosty days in January.
