The Nord Stream operator warned of a reduction in the supply of gas sent to the storage due to the inspection. It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the German regulator – the Federal Network Agency.
“The annual inspection of Nord Stream 1 is scheduled for July 11th. During the inspection, the gas pipeline will not be able to transport gas for up to two weeks. This could also result in less gas entering storage during this period,” the regulator said.
At present, the flow directed to Germany is stable. The country’s gas storage facilities are 54.22 percent full, which is higher than in 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2021.
Earlier, gas pipeline operator Nord Stream AG said that gas supplies to Europe via Nord Stream, Gazprom’s main supply route, could fall by 22 percent. According to the company, gas supplies as of June 13 are slightly more than 113 million cubic meters per day. On June 12, the volume of deliveries through the pipeline amounted to 145 million cubic meters per day, which is 22 percent more than the figure planned for today.
