    The UK will be left without Norwegian gas due to the vagaries of nature

    Published on

    Great Britain, having abandoned Russian gas, planned to receive it from Norway, but the vagaries of nature forced Oslo to reduce energy exports, said Torbjorn Soltvedt, chief analyst at the consulting company Verisk Maplecroft. He explained to Express how exactly the dry summer affected the agreements between Norway and the UK.

    The summer of 2022 was hot and dry in Norway, so The water level in the rivers has dropped significantly. Because of this, several hydroelectric power plants stopped, Saltvedt said. Under the current conditions, Norway was forced to release its own gas reserves, which led to a reduction in export supplies.

    The analyst noted that Norway is highly dependent on the amount of hydroelectricity generated. Western countries have deliberately increased the supply of Norwegian energy resources, but now they will face problems.

    In March, the UK refused to pay for Russian gas in rubles. Due to the cessation of energy supplies from Russia, London had to buy them in Norway and import liquefied gas from all over the world.

    Due to the energy crisis, the British predicted impoverishment and a life in which hot the house will become a luxury.
