German govt in talks with Uniper about support measures
BERLIN, June 30 (Reuters) - The German government is in talks with German utility Uniper UN01.DE about possible stabilization measures after the company withdrew its 2022 outlook due to gas supply restrictions, an Economy Ministry spokesperson said on Thursday.
The spokesperson said the discussions were due to the sharp rise in gas prices and the reduced supply volumes from Russia as a result of the war in Ukraine.
Uniper withdrew its 2022 outlook on Wednesday evening and said it had received only 40% of the contractually agreed gas volumes from Gazprom GAZP.MM since June 16.
