Gazprom announced that it produced 211.4 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas between January and May 2022, according to its most recent figures.
In comparison with the same period last year, this represents a decrease of 4.8% (or 10.6 bcm).
In the same period last year, the company’s domestic gas supplies came from the gas transmission system. They also showed a 17.7% increase in May over last year.
