The Yamal-Europa gas pipeline, which usually sends Russian gas west to Europe, operated on Sunday, for the 13th day in a row, heading east from Germany to Poland, according to German network operator Gascade, quoted by Reuters.

Data from the Mallnow measuring point on the German-Polish border showed volumes to the east of almost 5.4 million kilowatt hours (kWh / h), the flow being approximately constant over the last 24 hours.

The pipeline is a major route for Russian gas exports to Europe.

On Sunday there were no requests for westbound flows through Mallnow.

Russian exporter Gazprom also did not reserve pipeline export capacity for Sunday.

The company has set aside 8.3 million kWh / h of gas transit capacity for January, in a tender held last month.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said last week that Germany was selling Russian gas to Poland and Ukraine instead of improving the market situation, blaming the reversal of flows along the Yamal pipeline and rising prices on German gas importers.

Capacity ratings for Russian gas flows from Ukraine to Slovakia via the Velke Kapusany border crossing, another major Russian gas route to Europe, fell further on Sunday.

Nominations stood at 375,529 megawatt hours (MWh), the lowest level since February 25, 2021, compared to 524,134 MWh on Saturday, according to data from Slovak gas pipeline operator Eustream.
