With the looming winter, the question of Russia delivering sufficient gas for power, warmth, and industry is frequently discussed across German media. However, as far as I am aware, only the possible threat of Russia delivering insufficient or no gas at all has been discussed so far. Also, only the phrasing 'delivery of X% of the technically possible amount' is used which does not state what the actually ordered amount was. I keep wondering: Has Russia, as of August 21st, actually reduced the amount of delivered gas below their contractual obligations in violation of their contract?
I would be satisfied with news, or official statements that are detailing information on how much gas has actually been ordered in comparison to how much gas has been delivered? However, a more in-depth perspective on gas contracts, e.g., how long can a reparation be contractually justified, would be much appreciated.
The only hint I found of contractual violations is in the context of Uniper insolvency. However, the phrasing and article seems to avoid to actually call out any contractual violations.
A bit more than half [of the expected losses], are in connection with
expected future consequences of limits of gas imports from Russia.
Etwas mehr als die Hälfte davon, 6,5 Milliarden Euro, stünden im
Zusammenhang mit erwarteten künftigen Auswirkungen von
Gaslieferbeschränkungen aus Russland, teilte der Konzern heute mit.
