The restoration to service of the ruptured Nord Stream pipelines was technically possible, according to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak. He said on Sunday October 2nd that “there have never been such incidents. Of course, there are technical possibilities to restore the infrastructure, it takes time and appropriate funds. I am sure that appropriate possibilities will be found,” Novak said.
Denmark’s Energy Agency said on Sunday it had been informed by Nord Stream AG that stable pressure had now been achieved in Nord Stream 1. Nord Stream AG said on Saturday that gas was no longer flowing out of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, although a Swedish survey on Monday appeared to contradict this.
