MOSCOW, Sept 2 (Reuters) – Russian energy giant Gazprom (GAZP.MM) is set to restart gas supplies via the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline to Germany on schedule on Saturday after an interruption in three days for maintenance, two sources close to Gazprom’s plans said on Friday.

Nord Stream 1, which runs under the Baltic Sea to supply Germany and others, was operating at 20% capacity even before flows were interrupted for three days this week for maintenance. Deliveries are due to resume on Saturday at 01:00 GMT.

“Supplies are expected to continue” as planned, one of the sources told Reuters.

Moscow blames sanctions, imposed by the West after Russia sent troops to Ukraine in February, for hampering routine operations and maintenance of Nord Stream 1. Brussels says it is a pretext and that Russia is using gas as an economic weapon.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov added to concerns on Friday, saying there could be more disruptions to deliveries via Nord Stream 1. read more
