Hours after announcing that it would not resume Nord Stream 1 deliveries to Germany, Gazprom announced that it would deliver 42.7 million cubic meters of natural gas to Europe today through Ukraine, BTA reported, citing information to Reuters.
The volume through the Suja entry point is comparable to yesterday’s 41.3 million cubic meters, but will not be enough to compensate for the missing gas that was expected to flow today via Nord Stream 1.
Last night, the Russian gas company announced that during the repair of Nord Stream 1, a leak was discovered from the last operating turbine and therefore supplies will not be restored. Gazprom did not say when the problem would be solved.
Siemens Energy, which normally maintains the turbines along the gas pipeline, said that such a leak could not be the reason for stopping the supply of blue fuel. The German company added that the “Portovaya” compressor station, where the malfunction was detected, has other turbines to ensure the operation of “Nord Stream-1”.
