Transmission of Russian natural gas via pipeline North Stream to Europe is cut by roughly 40% because of delayed repair work, Gazprom informs on Tuesday.

Daily transmission capacity is reduced from 167 million to 100 million cubic meters per day, the company writes.

Gazprom doesn’t specify the duration of the volume reduction.

Nord Stream connects Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea.

Capacity has been limited on account of the pipeline lacking components that are being repaired by Siemens in Germany.
