Russian gas deliveries to Europe on three main pipeline routes were stable on Monday morning, with the Yamal-Europe pipeline continuing to flow eastwards from Germany into Poland.

Flows to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline across the Baltic Sea were at 71,025,104 kilowatt hours per hour (kWh/h) on Monday morning, slightly down from 73,133,575 kWh/h in the early hours of the morning, data from the pipeline operator showed, Reuters reported.

Eastbound flows into Poland from Germany along the Yamal-Europe pipeline were at 1,471,327 kWh/h at the Mallnow border point, data from operator Gascade showed, slightly up from Sunday.

The usually westbound pipeline reversed on March 15 as nominations to ship gas into Germany fell to zero, while Polish customers bought gas from Germany.

Russia's Gazprom (GAZP.MM) said on Monday it that it was continuing to supply natural gas to Europe via Ukraine in line with requests from European consumers.

The company said nominations, or requests for gas, stood at 109.5 million cubic metres (mcm) for March 28 after 109.6 mcm a day earlier.

Nominations for flows into Slovakia from Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point were also stable at 881,999 megawatt hours (MWh) per day on Monday, data from Slovakian operator TSO Eustream showed.
