Nord Stream gas capacity restrained by repair delays, Gazprom says

MOSCOW (Reuters): Russia’s Gazprom said on Tuesday capacity to supply gas to Europe through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline was constrained to 100 million cubic meters per day due to delayed repair works.

The pipeline, which runs from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea, can usually carry 167 mcm, Gazprom said in a statement on the company’s Telegram channel.

The cause of the reduced capacity was the delay in Germany company Siemens returning equipment that had been sent for repair.

Gas pipeline flows are currently in focus over disruption concerns in the wake of Moscow’s Ukraine invasion. Germany received more than half of its gas from Russia last year, a number that has since come down slightly.
