Planned maintenance work means supplies have come to a standstill

The flow of Russian gas to Germany through the Nord Stream 1 Baltic Sea pipeline was suspended on Monday.

Operator Nord Stream AG said that routine maintenance work would shut down the infrastructure for ten days. During the pre-planned stoppage, all gas flows will stop.

The operator highlighted that the situation was well flagged and had previously been agreed with all partners.

Last month, the Russian energy giant slashed the volumes of gas delivered to Germany via the pipe by 60% due to operational challenges, caused by the failure to return a serviced turbine on time from Canada. However, German Economy Minister Robert Habeck argued that it was “a political decision.”
