Russian gas company Gazprom has cut further supplies through the Baltic Sea pipeline, Nord Stream 1. The company announced on Monday that 20 percent, or 33 million cubic meters of gas, will continue to flow to Germany from July 27 (Wednesday), 6 a.m. ET Central Europe, via the most important supply line. She added that the reason was another turbine repair.
The head of the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin, threatened last week that there could be another cut in gas supplies via Nord Stream 1 around July 26. He had referred to the turbines used by the Russian energy company.
According to this, throttling is possible if the turbine repaired in Canada is not available again in time. So another turbine has to be sent around July 26 to fix it.
Gas deliveries via the currently most important connection to Germany for Russian natural gas resumed on Thursday after a ten-day routine maintenance. Early in June, Gazprom reduced pipeline deliveries to 40 percent of maximum capacity and indicated sending the turbine to Canada for repair. The German government considers this an excuse. (apa/dpa)
