Due to scheduled maintenance work, no Russian gas will flow to Germany through the Baltic Sea gas pipeline Nord Stream 1 for several days in July. Both lines of the double strand are to be switched off from July 11th to 21st, according to the operator’s website. There have already been corresponding temporary shutdowns in previous years.

The 1,224-kilometer pipeline, which went into operation in 2011 and runs through the Baltic Sea to Lubmin in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, is the most important connection for Russian natural gas to Germany. According to the company, more than 59 billion cubic meters were transported from Vyborg in western Russia in 2021.
