Gas prices in Europe once again broke a historic record on Friday and almost reached $1,200 per 1,000 cubic meters.
November futures on the TTF hub in the Netherlands at the opening of trading for the first time reached €100 per MWh or $1,199.44 per 1,000 cubic meters.
Gas prices later decreased by 1.7% to around $1,150 per 1,000 cubic meters.
One of the reasons for such sharp growth could be almost 3-fold decline in gas flow through the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline this morning, which later accelerated (4.3-fold), to about 0.5 mln cubic meters per hour (2.2 mln cubic meters per hour the day before).
Earlier this week, gas prices in Europe for the first time in history exceeded $1,000 per 1,000 cubic meters, and then surpassed $1,100.
