Gas Imports Crash to 1.6 mcm on Thursday

Gas Imports Crashed to their lowest at since 7th November 2005 on Thursday 19th January 2006 according to the Chairman of the Independent Energy Scrutiny Panel.

"Only 17,765.675 MegaWattHours of gas was imported yesterday", said Mr Hemming, "this is under 2 million cubic metres. We have been peaking on cold days at importing 34 mcm. This is why we are not storing sufficient gas on what should be a pretty "awash with gas" day."

"We were worried that cold weather on the continent would lead to reductions in imports and even exports of gas. It does look that this is happening. This is not helpful."
