Gazprom resumed gas supplies to Germany via Nord Stream

Gazprom has resumed gas supplies to Germany via the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline. The DPA agency writes about this with reference to a representative of the gas pipeline operator.

According to the gas transmission operators OPAL Gastransport and NEL Gastransport, the work of Nord Stream resumed from 7:00 (Moscow time). Interfax writes about it. According to the head of the Federal Network Agency of Germany Klaus Müller, the volume of supplies is 530 GW/h, that is, 30% of the total load of the gas pipeline.

Since mid-June, supplies through the pipeline have been limited, at the level of 40% of the maximum capacity. Gazprom explained this by a delay in the process of repairing a turbine from Siemens, which the German company could not return due to Canadian sanctions.

After that, the European side accused Gazprom of blackmail. Politicians insisted that the operating equipment was sufficient to maintain 100% gas flow. European Commissioner for Budget and Administration Johannes Hahn admitted that the European Union has actually come to terms with the cessation of gas supplies via Nord Stream and is preparing for the worst.
