Nord Stream: annual maintenance works scheduled for July 2020
Published by Aimee Knight,
From 14 July to 26 July 2020 Nord Stream AG will temporarily shut down both lines of its gas pipeline system for routine maintenance works.
The works during the scheduled shutdown are part of the pipeline’s annual maintenance cycle and a key element of Nord Stream’s long-term Pipeline Integrity Management Strategy.
“Since the start of Nord Stream Pipelines operation, we have continuously transported natural gas to the European market. Regular testing and maintenance of mechanical components and automation systems built to the highest industry standards are essential for ensuring the reliable, safe and efficient functioning of the twin pipeline,” Nord Stream AG’s Managing Director Alexey Zaytsev pointed out.
The schedule for the maintenance activities has been closely coordinated with Nord Stream’s upstream and downstream partners and disclosed in compliance with Regulation (EU) Nr.1227/2011 (Regulation on Wholesale Energy Market Integrity and Transparency – REMIT) well in advance at the time when the dates were determined.
All operational and maintenance activities are carried out with the necessary precautions and protection measures against COVID-19. Health and safety of company’s employees and contractors are of utmost importance to Nord Stream AG.
