From June 3, 2013 onwards, Nord Stream AG will be conducting routine maintenance works on both pipelines.
These long-planned works will be ongoing for about two weeks and require first each line separately, followed by both lines at once to be temporarily shut down during that time. The works include maintenance of mechanical components and software updates.
The schedule for the shutdown phase has been agreed with Nord Stream’s upstream and downstream partners and shipper. After the completion of all activities, Nord Stream will continue to transport to its downstream European partners all the gas nominated and supplied by the shipper.
