Gas Pumping Through the Nord Stream Pipeline Stopped For Maintenance
September 13, 2017 19:14


 Gas pumping through the Nord Stream Pipeline was stopped on Monday morning, September 11, for annual scheduled maintenance. The pressure in the pipe began to fall from 5:00 to Moscow time and by 7:00 the pumping was stopped. The works will be carried out at the receiving terminal in Greifswald, as well as at the compressor station Radeland of Opal Gas Pipeline (the land-based extension of Nord Stream). Repair will last till September 22.

"These planned annual maintenance activities are an important part of long-term pipeline integrity management strategy of Nord Stream AG to ensure safe and stable transportation of natural gas through the marine gas pipeline system", the agency reported to Nord Stream AG.

Moreover, the agency added that the technical works included the annual maintenance of mechanical components and testing of automation systems.

In early August 2017, the international rating agency Moody's reported that the construction of Nord Stream-2 pipelines, as well as another Turkish Stream gas pipeline project could be delayed because of anti-Russian sanctions of the United States.
