Russia replaced Algeria as Spain’s second-largest natural gas supplier in June after flows from the north African country dropped amid a diplomatic spat.

Imports from Russia reached 8,752 gigawatt-hours in June, more than doubling from May and corresponding to 24% of Spain’s total demand, according to gas network operator Enagas SA. Deliveries from Algeria dropped to 7,763 gigawatt-hours from 9,094 gigawatt hours in May, about half the figure for June 2021 and now representing 22% of demand. The US remains the biggest supplier, with a 30% share.
