Russian gas, 10 days stop Nord Stream 1

Unian

Gas supplies from Russia to Germany stop for 10 days due to scheduled maintenance work on Nord Stream 1. The supplies are expected to resume on 21 July but the fear is that they may not resume while the war in Ukraine continues. The cut in consumption for Europe should be 15%, for Germany 20%.

In Italy 3 alarm levels and a plan of interventions are foreseen ranging from “rationing” to energy-intensive industries with greater use of coal plants, austerity on consumption and lighting.
