The Minister of Industry and Trade Jozef Síkela (for STAN) stated that the gas storage tanks contain a total of 2.44 billion m3 of gas.

The gas reservoirs are almost 73% full. He added that thanks to the new measures, the state has a direct influence on more than a quarter of these reserves. The measures aim to rid the Czech Republic of its energy dependence on Russia. They include the Use It or Lose It strategy, which aims to prevent the reservoirs from remaining empty before winter. In the event of gas supply shortages, it will be possible to temporarily replace the supply of heat produced from gas with back-up fuels.
