Gazprom says sanctions are blocking the maintenance of three more Nord Stream gas turbines
- The sanctions impact the need for maintenance of three offline Nord Stream gas turbines in addition to the turbine stuck in Germany. Gazprom say the three turbines were taken offline as part of schedule maintenance.
- Gazprom reiterated it was impossible for it to take delivery of the turbine from Germany under a sanctions waiver approved by Canada and not from the EU.
- Nord Stream requires five big turbines to operate at full capacity but they currently say only one is operational resulting in flows of just 20% of capacity.
