Increased energy costs

After the very hot summer this year and the obvious low usage of gas.Why wasn’t the gas storage units filled during this period for the increase in energy during the winter period?

Hi @Patricia1 - Fair question. We tried to answer it in our August Blog, I’ve linked it here:

Basically, the hot summer meant that a lot of gas was shipped to Asia to be used in Air Conditioning units, which meant filling the reserves went slower than we would expect, the extreme cold of the winter also contributed to using more of our stores beforehand.
