Gazprom is set to begin deliveries of natural gas through Nord Stream on Saturday as scheduled

Russia looks set to resume deliveries of natural gas to Europe via the Nord Stream pipeline tomorrow, Saturday, after a short three-day maintenance, according to data released today by the natural gas pipeline operator.

Russian energy giant Gazprom is expected to resume natural gas deliveries through Nord Stream 1 to Germany on Saturday, two sources familiar with Gazprom’s plans said today.

Nord Stream 1, which runs under the Baltic Sea to supply Germany and other countries, was operating at 20 percent of its capacity even before its flow was interrupted for three days this week. Deliveries are expected to start tomorrow, at 04.00 Greek time.

“Procurements will proceed” as planned, one of the sources told Reuters.

Moscow blames sanctions, imposed by the West after Russian troops were sent to Ukraine in February, to hinder routine operations and maintenance of Nord Stream 1. Brussels says this is a pretext and Russia is using the physical gas as an economic weapon.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov raised fresh concerns today, saying there could be more disruptions to deliveries via Nord Stream 1.
