On Monday, according to Bloomberg, the first round of several hours of traffic testing was completed. At the same time, it was possible to produce up to 30 thousand tons of liquefied natural gas there.

According to Vitalije Markelov, all that remains now is to overcome the last administrative obstacles and the operation will be ready for full operation.

The Russian liquefied natural gas plant is located near the Portovaja compressor station. In it, among other things, representatives of the Russian Gazprom should have discovered an oil leak a few days ago, which subsequently caused the interruption of gas supplies through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.

Representatives of the German company Siemens Energy also participated in the maintenance at the Portovaja compressor station. According to them, defects of this type should not prevent the operation of the gas pipeline. The Portovaja compressor station also has other turbines that can keep Nord Stream 1 in operation.

A few weeks ago, the facility also came into the spotlight after NASA satellites detected a huge gas flare off the Russian Baltic Sea coast. This has raised concerns that Russia’s national gas giant is burning the fuel directly rather than shipping it to Europe at a time of sanctions over the war in Ukraine.
