Gas in Europe rises in price against certification of Nord Stream 2 being suspended

Spot gas prices in Europe turned to rise on November 16 against the statement of the German regulator Bundesnetzagentur (Federal Network Agency) on the temporary suspension of certification of Nord Stream 2 AG as an independent operator of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. According to the ICE exchange, at 15:00 Moscow time at the Dutch TTF hub, 1000 m3 of gas with delivery in December cost $1,053.36 (against $956.96 the day before).
