Gazprom ready to resume gas supply to Europe, but with reduced flow

Ten-day maintenance finished. The supply would be low-flow and the final decision is the Kremlin

Russian gas flows through the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline should restart on Thursday 21 July, thus respecting the scheduled maintenance schedule announced by Gazprom.

This is what some agencies such as Bloomberg and Reuters report. The pipeline, which accounts for more than a third of Russian natural gas exports to the European Union, was shut down for ten days of annual maintenance on 11 July – in particular for the replacement of a turbine arriving from Canada – and c ‘there were strong fears that gas flows might never resume, given that last month exports to the Old Continent had dropped to 40%.

In any case, the pipeline would reportedly resume operation but at a reduced capacity of less than approximately 160 million cubic meters per day. On the Amsterdam market, after rumors about the imminent resumption of flows on Nord Stream 1, gas prices have reversed course.
