Gazprom again asking Siemens to submit documents to permit return of Nord Stream turbine amid Canadian, EU sanctions

MOSCOW. July 20 (Interfax) - Gazprom to date has not received any official documents from Siemens allowing for supplying the gas turbine engine for the Portovaya compressor station amid the Canadian and European Union sanctions restrictions, the Russian company said in a statement.

Gazprom emphasizes that it has previously sent similar requests to the German concern.

"In these circumstances, Gazprom again requests that Siemens provide the documents. Gazprom has again drawn attention to the fact that the guaranteed return of the turbine engine, which was previously sent for repair under sanctions restrictions, as well as the subsequent overhaul of other turbine engines for the Portovaya CS, directly affect the safe operation of the Nord Stream gas pipeline, Gazprom notes.
