(ZEROHEDGE) – A letter from Ofgem, the UK’s power regulator, warned about the “significant risk” of a natural gas shortage this winter because of disruptions to energy markets following the war in Ukraine and undersupply of Europe.

Bloomberg Opinion’s Javier Blas tweeted a photograph of the letter focusing on technical changes in the UK electricity market. Blas highlighted the critical parts of the letter in the “background” section that detailed a dark and cold winter for the UK could be just ahead.

Here’s what Blas outlined: “Due to the war in Ukraine and gas shortages in Europe, there is a significant risk that gas shortages could occur during the winter 2022/23 in Great Britain (‘GB’). As a result, there is a possibility that GB could enter into a Gas Supply Emergency. … In the event that GB reaches Stage 2 in this procedure, Firm Load Shedding of gas would be applied to the largest gas users connected to the gas system. This will likely be large gas-fired power stations which produce electricity to the National Electricity Transmission System (‘NETS’).”
