Okoli Gas Storage Facility Filled to 61% of Capacity

ZAGREB, 11 August, 2022 - On 10 August, the Okoli gas storage facility had a total of 2.63 billion kilowatt hours (kWh) of gas, which is 61% of its capacity, show data from the underground gas storage facility located in Sisak-Moslavina County.

According to recommendations by the European Commission and a Croatian government decision, the facility should be filled to 90% of its storage capacity by 1 November.

In early June, the government instructed the state-owned power provider HEP to procure 270.8 million cubic metres of natural gas and store it at Okoli to secure supply on the domestic market during the winter.

In late July, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said that the facility was being filled according to plan.

Nonetheless, compared to 10 August 2021, the quantity of natural gas currently stored at Okoli is 683 million kWh smaller.
