According to our information, there are no technical reasons for limiting the transportation” – stated the German Ministry of Economy, citing Dr.

Gazprom resumed gas flow through Nord Stream 1 last week after a 10-day maintenance lay-off, but only at 40 percent pipeline capacity. This is the level Russia cut volumes to in June due to delays, according to Moscow, in returning turbines that had serviced in Canada.

European politicians questioned this interpretation, and Germany argued that the restriction of gas supplies had nothing to do with renewing the turbine, which was only scheduled to restart in September. At the same time, a few days ago, information appeared that the part serviced in Canada was stuck in Cologne in western Germany, because the Russian authorities did not provide the customs documents necessary for approval of its further transfer.

German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said last weekend that one can get the impression that Russia does not want to restore its turbines, which means that Moscow’s technical difficulties are only an excuse to restrict gas supplies, and the real reasons. To do so is political.

Russia is the world’s second largest exporter of crude oil after Saudi Arabia, and the world’s largest exporter of natural gas. Europe imports about 40 percent. your gas and 30 percent. Oil from Russia.
