Energy giant cites “extraordinary” circumstances outside its control, Reuters says

Russian energy giant Gazprom has declared force majeure on gas supplies to at least one major EU customer retroactively starting June 14, Reuters reported on Monday citing a company letter it has seen.

According to the document, Gazprom could not fulfil its supply obligations due to “extraordinary” circumstances outside its control, Reuters explains.

The agency cites its sources as saying that the letter was referring to supplies to Germany via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.

The route is currently undergoing planned annual maintenance which is due to be completed on Thursday, however many in Germany fear that the flow will not be resumed.
