Maintenance shutdown for Nord Stream

Nord Stream AG will be conducting long-planned annual maintenance works on its twin gas pipeline system between June 24 and July 4, 2014.

These routine maintenance works will require a temporary shutdown first of both lines at once, then of each line separately.
These works are an essential part of Nord Stream’s long-term pipeline integrity management strategy to ensure that the pipelines will be able to continue transporting up to 55 bcm of gas per year safely and efficiently for at least 50 years. The maintenance works include annual maintenance of mechanical components, as well as testing of the automation system.

The schedule for these maintenance activities has been agreed and coordinated with Nord Stream’s upstream and downstream pipeline partners well in advance.

The temporary interruption of supplies has been factored into the nominations of gas planned for Nord Stream to transport to downstream European partners during 2014.

Nord Stream is an export gas pipeline running under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany. The two-string gas pipeline stretches 1,224 kilometers and has the capacity of 55 billion cubic meters. The Nord Stream project is implemented by Nord Stream joint venture (with Gazprom holding a 51 per cent stake, Wintershall Holding and E.ON Global Commodities – 15.5 per cent each, Gasunie and GDF Suez – 9 per cent each).
