At the end of February, the average price on the exchange in the Baltic and Finnish markets was around 55 EUR/MWh. The price decrease was driven by a warmer than normal winter in Europe which led to the filling of natural gas storage facilities, strong LNG imports and a decrease in overall gas consumption in Europe. Individual transaction prices in February ranged from 44.76 EUR/MWh to 139.00 EUR/MWh.
