Spanish LNG terminal operator, Enagás said Tuesday that natural gas demand in October in the country rose 8 percent to 29.3 TWh.

Conventional demand, destined for domestic, commercial and industrial consumption, ended the month with an increase of about 4 percent year-on-year, to exceed 20.6 TWh.

This is the largest increase registered in the month of October since official records have been kept, according to Enagás.

The rise is attributed mainly to the greater use of natural gas by industry, which grew by about 7 percent.

The demand for natural gas for power generation ended October with a rise of 19 percent to 8.6 TWh.

This increase was mainly due to very low hydroelectricity generation and a lower contribution from wind power, Enagás said.

In the year to date, natural gas demand in Spain has grown by about 9 percent over the same period of 2016 largely owing to a 7.3 percent growth in industrial demand, which represents 60 percent of the total national demand.

It has also contributed to the increase in conventional demand and deliveries of natural gas for power generation, the Spanish company added.
