Operator data on requests for gas on the Nord Stream 1 pipeline from Russia to Europe suggest flows should resume from Saturday morning, when Gazprom said maintenance work will be completed.
Gas nominations were at 14,437,507 kilowatt hours per hour (kwh/h) for the four-hour period between 0200-0300 CET and 0500-0600 CET for Sept. 3, the operator's website showed on Friday.
Nominations are essentially capacity requests for gas transport and can be changed by the supplier when needed. When they are changed they are described as renominations, but those can also still be changed.
The nomination amount is similar to levels before the latest maintenance, which represents only 20% of the pipeline's capacity.
