Russia’s Gazprom (MCX:GAZPIt plans to retain gas pumping equipment from Portovaya and Slavyanskaya compressor stations, which supply the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines, Kommersant newspaper reported on Monday, citing sources.
According to Kommersant, Gazprom plans to keep the equipment in the stations and not move it to other sites.
Kommersant said Gazprom declined to comment on its article.
Neither of the two Nord Stream pipelines, laid on the bottom of the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany, currently carries gas.
Nord Stream 1 was closed for repair on 31 August and has not returned to operation, while Nord Stream 2 was not commissioned following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Both lines were damaged in what European authorities have called an act of sabotage.
