Gazprom confirms the cessation of gas supplies to the Netherlands for refusing to pay in rubles

MADRID, May 31. (EUROPE PRESS) –

The Russian company Gazprom confirmed on Tuesday the cessation of gas supplies to the Dutch company GasTerra BV for refusing to pay in rubles, as part of the retaliatory measures imposed by Russia to deal with the attempts to blockade and boycott energy that arrive from Europe for the invasion of Ukraine.

The cessation of supplies means that from now until October 1, 2022, the date on which the contract ends, the Netherlands will stop receiving approximately 2,000 million cubic meters of gas per year.

To compensate, the Dutch gas transportation company Gasunie is urgently building a terminal at the port of Eemshaven in Groningen. With the contracting of two regasification vessels, GasTerra BV is expected to receive at least 8,000 million cubic meters of gas per year.

According to Gazprom, the supply to the Netherlands alone in 2020 was about 11.81 billion cubic meters per year, mentions the Russian agency Interfax. With this decision, the Netherlands joins the one already adopted by Poland, Bulgaria and Finland, to whom the end of these supplies has also been confirmed.

On March 31, by order of President Vladimir Putin, Russian energy companies were forced to charge for their services in rubles to offset European sanctions imposed for the invasion of Ukraine three months ago.
