Russia’s Gazprom has refused claims from Canadian ministers that turbines of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline are still in Canada.
In an interview with CBC News Network, Canada‘s Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly said the country planned to return five turbines that had already undergone maintenance in Montreal.
In a brief announcement, Gazprom said: “Currently, none of the turbines of the Portovaya Compression Station are undergoing repairs in Canada.”
Gazprom plans maintenance at Portovaya from 31st August to 2nd September.
The delivery of one turbine was previously delayed by sanctions, prompting Gazprom to reduce flows through Nord Stream 1.
