Russia says status of Nord Stream 1 turbine still unclear

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that Moscow has not yet received a proper explanation about the status of a turbine on the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline that has been repaired by Siemens Energy in Canada. .

Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov said the turbine had not yet arrived in Russia, but Moscow hoped it would be installed “sooner rather than later.”

Russian gas giant Gazprom said on Monday that it had received documentation on the turbine, but some problems and risks remained.

Russia blamed the turbine delay on reduced gas flows through Nord Stream 1 to Germany to 40% of capacity in June. On Monday, Gapzrom said flows would be halved again from Wednesday to just 20%, saying another turbine needs to be shut down.
