Nord Stream to Shut Baltic Sea Pipeline for Maintenance

Nord Stream AG informed that it will be conducting long-planned annual maintenance work on its twin gas pipeline system in the Baltic Sea between August 09 and 17, 2016.

This routine maintenance work will require a temporary shutdown of both lines at once. The full capacity of the pipeline system will be available again by August 19, 2016, the company said.

Since the launch of the second line in 2012, the Nord Stream twin-pipeline system has been reliably providing capacity to transport gas to the EU, helping meet its demand for imports safely, in an environmentally sound way and under sensible economic conditions,” Nord Stream AG’s managing director Alexey Zagorovskiy said. “Throughout Nord Stream’s operations, reliability and safety will continue to be a top priority: the scheduled annual maintenance work thus plays an important role in ensuring that the pipelines will be able to deliver gas safely and efficiently.”

The work includes annual maintenance of mechanical components, as well as testing of the automation system. The schedule for these maintenance activities has been agreed and coordinated with Nord Stream’s upstream and downstream pipeline partners well in advance.
