Gazprom's EU Exports on Track for Record

Russian gas exports to the European Union (EU) were slightly down compared with August 2018 but up 8.3% on September last year and on track for another record-breaking year. 

Gazprom Western Monthly Exports 

Even if there were some specific days of record daily deliveries of Russian gas to the EU, on average Russian flows in September were down 1.9% and this was mainly because of a growth of Russian flows to Turkey via Ukraine, excluded in this monthly EU analysis.
