    Gazprom explained the stop of the Nord Stream

    Published on

    Gazprom explained the shutdown of the only turbine pumping gas through the Nord Stream pipeline. Further operation of the unit could create an explosion threat, according to a message in the company’s Telegram channel.

    A warning about the inadmissibility of violating the mandatory requirements, taking appropriate measures and suspending the operation of the Trent 60 gas compressor unit (GPA No. 24) of the Portovaya CS due to the detection of an oil leak with an admixture of a sealing compound through the terminal connectors of the low and intermediate pressure rotor speed sensors,” the statement says.

    It is also noted that further operation of the turbine without troubleshooting would create a risk of fire or explosion and thus affect the industrial safety of the entire Portovaya station, from where gas enters Nord Stream ”.

    In early September, Gazprom announced a complete suspension of the operation of the only remaining gas turbine at the Portovaya station for an indefinite period due to identified defects. Thus, gas is currently supplied to Europe only through the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.
