Russia temporarily suspends gas supply via Turkish Stream gas pipeline



Russian gas giant Gazprom has announced that it will halt gas delivery through both strings of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline from June 21-28 due to scheduled annual maintenance.

The suspension was agreed in advance by all interested parties, Xinhua news agency reported, citing a Gazprom statement.

The Turkish Stream gas pipeline through the black seabed consists of two strings, one supplying gas to Turkish consumers and the other supplying energy to southern and southeastern European countries.

The pipeline was commissioned in January 2020 with a total capacity of 31.5 billion cubic meters per year.

Earlier this week, Gazprom said it would drastically reduce gas delivery to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to no more than 67 million cubic meters per day, citing the failure of Siemens, the engine maker gas turbine engine, to provide overhaul service. on time.
