Croatia’s only underground gas storage at Okoli has reached 90% of storage capacity, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said after Thursday’s cabinet session.

“The underground storage has been filled at 90%, according to plan,” Plenković said.

The news website Nacional reported on 23 September that the storage in central Croatia had received a total of 3.75 billion kilowatt hours of gas, or 87% of capacity.

Croatia’s annual gas consumption is estimated at around 2.9 billion cubic metres, Nacional added.

Commenting on the upcoming emergency meeting of the EU’s energy council, Plenković said Economy Minister Davor Filipović would advocate the position of reaching a global or European solution that would put a price cap on gas, according to a government statement.
