According to government data, the current capacity is 70.69 percent, which means that a total of 67.5 terawatt hours of gas is stored, which is about two-thirds of the annual gas consumption in Austria.

All warehouses throughout the country reached occupancy of more than 60 percent, and OMV warehouses even reached 92.7 percent.

According to the government’s earlier goal, the warehouse should be 80 percent full by November 1.

Germany also has a good chance of getting through the winter despite reduced gas flows from Russia, thanks to measures that include extending the life of two nuclear power plants.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said this today.

Gas storage capacity in Germany is higher than at this time last year and will continue to be replenished before winter, Scholz said in an address to the German Employers’ Union, Reuters reports.

Earlier, the German chancellor stated that the federal government is planning a package of assistance to citizens, noting that “no one will be left alone.” Agencies
