Pipes are pictured at a gas compressor station in Mallnow, Germany, November 1, 2021. REUTERS/Hannibal HanschkeLONDON, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Europe’s gas inventories swelled at the end of December and beginning of January thanks to a combination of mild weather and an influx of liquefied natural gas cargoes. An extended period of unusually warm weather over Christmas and New Year has cut heating demand for both gas and gas-fired electricity, cutting the drawdown of inventories. If there is a sustained spell of cold weather later in January or February, prices and spreads are likely to spike higher. But the combination of mild weather, LNG arrivals and depressed consumption over the Christmas-New Year period has reduced some of the previous extreme pressure on gas stocks and prices.

The two onshore pipe exits of the Baltic Sea pipeline Nord Stream 2 are pictured at the landfall facility in Lubmin, Germany, September 10, 2020. A senior Republican congressional aide said on Saturday he believed Cruz's bill would pass. Biden opposes Nord Stream 2, which is completed but awaiting approvals from Germany, because it would bypass Ukraine, depriving it of transit fees and potentially undermining its struggle against Russia. In May, the Biden administration placed sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG, the company that controls the pipeline. In a setback for Nord Stream 2, Germany's energy regulator said on Thursday that no decision on whether to allow it to be commissioned is expected in the first half of 2022.
