No gas will flow through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline for the time being.
The physical flow of gas from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea pipeline dropped to zero overnight. Gazprom previously announced that the pipeline would be closed for maintenance from August 31 to September 2.
RAs expected, ussland stopped gas deliveries via Nord Stream 1 to Europe on Wednesday night. Physical gas flow from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea pipeline fell to zero, data from entry point operators showed. The Russian state-owned company Gazprom announced almost two weeks ago that the pipeline would be closed from August 31 to September 2 for maintenance work.
Russia blames technical problems caused by Western sanctions for stopping gas supplies, while Germany and France, for example, accuse Russia of using gas supplies as a weapon of war. Germany is particularly dependent on Russian gas and is desperately trying to find other suppliers.
