RWE Transgas says only in extreme crisis would gas supplies to large consumers be limited

The Czech Republic is one of several countries in Europe hit by Moscow’s move; it normally receives close to 80 percent of its gas from Russia. The news website idnes.cz reported that the country’s biggest gas supplier RWE Transgas had written to large consumers, warning them their supplies could be reduced in case of a crisis. However, the firm says it would have to be an extreme crisis for that to occur; it said it had reserves equivalent to 40 days supply, and was working to increase imports from northern Europe.
