Nord Stream Resumes Gas Dispatch After Maintenance

Nord Stream has conducted an annual maintenance work on its twin gas pipeline system August 9-17, 2016, with a temporary shutdown of both lines.

Gas transmission from its Russian upstream-partner will resume by August 18, 2016, when the full capacity of the pipeline system will again be available.

Nord Stream AG’s maintenance director, Ruurd Hoekstra, said: “A comprehensive, long-term pipeline integrity management strategy is an essential part of Nord Stream AG’s operations. Thanks to this, and to the expertise of our staff, for the fourth year in a row we are carrying out this planned maintenance work on the Nord Stream twin-pipeline system safely and on time, on the basis of state-of-the-art industry standards.”

The schedule for these maintenance activities was agreed and coordinated with Nord Stream’s upstream and downstream pipeline operators well in advance. The temporary interruption of supplies was factored into the nominations of gas to be transported via Nord Stream to downstream European partners.
