LONDON (Reuters) - Eastbound gas flows via the Yamal-Europe pipeline from Germany to Poland jumped on Tuesday, data from the Gascade pipeline operator showed.

Exit flows at the Mallnow metering point on the German border rose to 11,297,464 kilowatt hours per hour (kWh/h), from 792,085 kWh/h in the previous day, the data showed.

The Yamal-Europe pipeline, which traverses Belarus, Poland and Germany, has mostly worked in reverse mode since December, sending gas eastward from Germany to Poland.

Nominations for Russian gas for Slovakia through Ukraine via the Velke Kapusany border point were down slightly at 983,721 megawatt hours (MWh) per day on Tuesday, from 996,130 MWh on Monday, data from Slovakian operator TSO Eustream showed.

Flows of Russian gas to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline across the Baltic Sea were stable at 70,746,379 kWh/h, down from 73,242,914 kWh/h at midnight.

Russian gas nominations via Ukraine to Europe stood at 97.5 million cubic metres (mcm) for Tuesday, down from 98.7 mcm the day before, the Interfax news agency reported, citing data from Ukraine's gas pipeline operator.
