Key turbine for Nord Stream stuck in Canada due to sanctions

The turbine that feeds the key Nord Stream pipeline is stuck in Canada and cannot return to Russia after maintenance. This was reported by Bloomberg.

Sanctions against Russia following its military invasion of Ukraine have left key equipment needed for the Nord Stream pipeline overseas. The turbine manufactured by German Siemens Energy is currently unable to be returned from Canada after maintenance. In addition, another turbine, which is also subject to maintenance, cannot be sent abroad due to sanctions.

This is likely to lead to longer-than-expected cuts in gas supplies to Russia's key gas pipeline to Europe. As reported by ExPro, supplies of Russian natural gas to Europe through Nord Stream-1 as of June 13, 2022, fell by 20% down to 113 mcm.
