Canada announces talks with Germany on turbines for Nord Stream
Gazprom announced a reduction in gas supplies via Nord Stream due to problems with the return of turbines from Canada after repairs. The pumping volume was reduced to 67 million cubic meters. m per day. As a result, gas prices exceeded $1,500 per thousand cubic meters.
Canada is in talks with Germany over the maintenance of Siemens turbines for the Nord Stream gas pipeline, Reuters reports, citing a statement from a spokesman for the Canadian Ministry of Natural Resources Canada.
“The Government of Canada is in active discussions with Germany about the turbines in question and we are working towards a decision,” says the statement.
June 14 Gazprom announced a reduction in gas supplies via Nord Stream; up to 100 million cubic meters m per day with the planned 167 million cubic meters. m per day. They explained this by “untimely return of gas pumping units from repair by Siemens” at the Portovaya compressor station.
The next day, the Russian company reported that they had decommissioned another gas turbine engine, linking this “with the end of the period between overhauls before overhaul.” As a result, the volume of pumping through the pipeline was reduced by another third— up to 67 million cubic meters m of gas per day.
Siemens itself explained that the return of repaired turbines is impossible due to the sanctions of Canada, which produces these engines.
On the eve of the head of “Gazprom” Alexey Miller at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) announced the absence of a decision to restore gas supplies to Germany via Nord Stream. Miller wondered, “Is it coincidental or not” that Siemens only has one plant where turbines can be repaired, — in Canada, pointing out that the Canadian authorities have imposed sanctions against Gazprom, although the company does not work there. Siemens is currently unable to take back the engines due to these restrictions. “The engine lies at the factory, Siemens cannot pick it up, and other engines do not fit all” by the time it needs to be overhauled. And do not send to Canada or to another factory. Is this sanctions confusion, or the answer to the question, why was this done?»— inquired the head of Gazprom. Deliveries to Europe, he noted, were reduced “by tens of percent, but prices rose several times.” “If I say that we are not offended by anyone, then I won’t pretend,” — concluded Miller.
