Gazprom to halt Chinese gas supplies on Sept 22-29 for maintenance

Russia's Gazprom plans to take the Power of Siberia pipeline offline between September 22 and 29 for planned maintenance work, temporarily halting gas deliveries to China.

Preventative maintenance at the pipeline takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn, as agreed as part of the supply contract between Gazprom and China's CNPC.

When Gazprom launched the 38bn m3/year Power of Siberia at the end of 2019, it estimated that sales would reach 15bn m3 this year. But the company has provided no information on volumes since then, besides that they continue to rise.
