Moscow, Jul 25 (EFE).- Russia’s state energy giant Gazprom on Monday announced it would drop gas deliveries through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to 33 million cubic meters per day starting July 27.
The company linked the reduction, which comes as Europe braces for a possible energy crisis in the winter season, to further maintenance work on a turbine.
“As of 7:00 Moscow time (4:00 GMT), the daily production of the Portovaya compressor station will be 33 million cubic meters per day,” the company wrote on its Telegram account.
Russia currently supplies only 40% of its usual flow of gas to Europe.
In mid-June, Gazprom cut its daily gas supplies by 33%, to 67 million cubic meters, also citing maintenance work.
The disruptions come amid Moscow’s war in Ukraine and the Western sanctions imposed in response.EFE
