The lifting of Western sanctions will allow for the repair of turbines for Nord Stream, due to problems with which the operation of the gas pipeline was stopped, Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters, RBC correspondent reports.
“Absolutely. The very sanctions that prevent servicing the unit, moving it without appropriate legal guarantees, which prevent giving legal guarantees, the sanctions that Western states have introduced, have brought the situation to what we see now, — said the Kremlin spokesman, answering the question whether gas pumping through the Nord Stream will resume; in case of lifting the sanctions.
He stated that the problems with pumping arose precisely because of the sanctions. “There are no other reasons. One unit remained working, but it also falters. This causes the pumping to stop»,— Peskov pointed out.
The Kremlin spokesman added that now one can only hope that the only gas turbine engine for the gas pipeline will be put in order. “In fact, everything rests on one unit that needs serious maintenance,” — he pointed out.
September 2 Gazprom announced the stoppage of gas pumping through Nord Stream; due to the fact that an oil leak was detected on the equipment of the last gas turbine engine. The company said that it, among other things, was recorded by representatives of Siemens. They said that the leak does not affect the operation of the unit, and the problem itself can be fixed on the spot.
Gas pumping through Nord Stream began to decline in early summer. By the end of July, its capacity fell to 20% of the design. “Gazprom” explained this by problems with the return of the Siemens turbine from repair, which Canada delayed due to sanctions. The authorities of the latter later agreed to transfer the gas turbine engine to Germany, and also expressed their readiness to give it to Russia, however, Gazprom insists on the need for official clarifications from the EU and Britain on sanctions that will rule out further problems with the transportation and repair of turbines.
