Gazprom will install a gas turbine at Portova immediately after the return
Gazprom will install a gas turbine at Portova compressor station immediately after the return and gas will be supplied in "corresponding volumes", Kremlin press secretary Dmytro Peskov said. It is worth noting that the spokesman did not talk about increasing supplies to the maximum possible volumes.
The service company Siemens Energy received an export license from Canada and sent it to Gazprom. The license gives permission for repair, maintenance, and transportation of turbines for Portova compressor station until the end of 2024. It is also noted that Russia can receive the turbine already in the middle of the last week of July.
Gazprom stated that they have received the necessary documents, but they do not remove the previously mentioned risks, and the company still has questions regarding sanctions from the EU and Great Britain, the resolution of which is important for the delivery of the turbine and the urgent overhaul of other gas turbine engines for the Portova. Thus, the company once again asked Siemens to provide the necessary documents and explanations to resolve the remaining issues.
