Nord Stream 1 Russia-to-Europe Gas Pipeline Shut Down for Maintenance

HeadlineJul 13, 2022

In Europe, the Nord Stream 1 pipeline has been shut down for 10 days of maintenance, cutting off the flow of natural gas from Russia to Germany and other EU nations. The cutoff was planned, though it’s not clear whether Russian officials will restart gas shipments later this month when the pipeline is scheduled to come back online. One hundred forty days after Russia invaded Ukraine, Germany still relies on Russia for more than a third of its gas supply, while France imports about 17% of its gas from Russia.
