Nord Stream Resumes Gas Flows After Annual Maintenance
All planned maintenance works on the Nord Stream twin gas pipelines have been concluded within the scheduled time frame.
Gas transmission resumed today and the full capacity of both pipelines is now available again, Nord Stream AG informed.
Nord Stream AG’s maintenance director, Olivier Escola, said: “For the sixth consecutive year, our Operations and Maintenance teams as well as our contractors have done an excellent job. Nord Stream AG has completed all maintenance activities as planned and on time. This annual interruption of gas transportation ensures that Nord Stream maintains on the long run the highest standards of safety and reliability. This enables us to contribute to secure energy supply in Europe.”
The maintenance works for northern gas corridor (starting from Gryazovets, Russia and finishing in Rehden, Germany and on German/Czech border) had been scheduled in coordination with Nord Stream AG’s upstream and downstream partners in advance.
The temporary interruption of supplies was factored into the nominations of gas to be transported via the Nord Stream Pipeline to downstream European partners.
