Earlier this week, Siemens said it had not been asked to do the work. The company has also pointed out that the sanctions do not prohibit maintenance.

Meanwhile, Citi Group Research quoted: “There appears to be a high probability that Nord Stream 1 exports will remain at zero for longer or at minimal levels, based on political considerations in both Russia and the West.”
