PARIS (Reuters) - France is well prepared to get through this winter despite the energy crisis stemming from the war in Ukraine as it has now filled its strategic gas reserves at their maximum level, Energy Minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher said on Tuesday.

"Today we have reached the maximum level for our gas reserves (...) These gas stocks represent 50% of our winter consumption, so we are in the best conditions to go through the winter," Pannier-Runacher told CNews television.
