Minor update of the gas supply and demand situation 2020-2022
Today, an updated status is published for the possible supply and demand situation 2020-2022 based on mitigation initiatives and new demand assumptions.
Compared to supply and demand situation described in September 2019 the situation in 2020-2022 seems improved.
Since the analysis from September 2019 the main developments are the following:
- Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has published "Analysis Assumptions 2020" with less Danish gas demand and increased biogas production
- More firm capacity in Entry Ellund on the German side has been booked
- the German Gas TSO Gasunie Deutschland reassesses the capacity situation during the gas year, based on the actual supply/demand situation. In some cases, they are able to in-crease the capacity towards Denmark on a short-term basis
- The storage facilities are still partly filled with Danish gas with high calorific value. The storage volume capacity has been increased in 2020. The offered capacity has been booked.
