German gas grid group FNB says Austria incident not to affect supply

"There was an explosion around 8:45 a.m. (0745 GMT) and a fire", a police spokesman said.

The state criminal investigation said a technical defect could be the cause of the tragedy.

Around 150 firefighters and rescuers from 14 fire brigades and 10 ambulances were summoned, as well as two helicopters - a rescue helicopter and police helicopter monitoring the entire situation.

FNB said that Europe's diverse gas supply origins and storage facilities would allow some shifting of gas to other routes to help maintain internal supply security.

"We don't now assume any problems with the supply of gas but we are observing the situation with utmost attention", Berlin-based FNB said in a statement. "If we had had the TAP, we would not have to declare a state of emergency", Calenda told reporters, as quoted by Reuters.

Gas supplies have not been disrupted or impacted in Slovakia, the DennĂ­k N daily's website wrote, citing the SPP gas utility.

Russia's Gazprom says it is aware of the incident and is "currently working on the redistribution of gas flows" to ensure customers remain unaffected, Ria Novosti reported.

Baumgarten, situated about 50 kilometers (31 miles) northeast of Vienna, transports the equivalent of a tenth of Europe's gas demand.
