Gazprom to Resume Gas Delivery to Italy

Russian-state owned energy firm Gazprom announced on Wednesday that gas exports via Austria will be resumed, primarily to Italy. The exports had been halted over the weekend due to regulatory challenges.

According to the report, the company and its Italian clients have worked out a plan for gas sales in light of recent regulatory shifts in Austria.

“The Austrian operator said about its readiness to confirm the transport nominations of LLC Gazprom Export, which allows resuming Russian gas supplies through Austria,” Gazprom said.

On Saturday, Gazprom said that gas transit through Austria had been halted after its grid operator refused to confirm transport nominations or the amount of gas that Gazprom planned to ship.
