Germany's Rehden gas storage to be operational again from Friday morning
BERLIN, Feb 2 (Reuters) - Germany's gas storage facility in Rehden will go back into operation on Friday at 0600 local time (0500 GMT), 12 hours earlier than initially scheduled, storage operator Astora said on Thursday.
The storage facility had been taken out of service for safety reasons on Tuesday.
"In the last two days, the storage facility was thoroughly checked by the staff on site and in Kassel in coordination with the responsible authorities, which enabled the technical defect to be identified," Astora said.
"The damages identified during the investigation will be repaired in a timely manner so that the injection operation can also be resumed. The incident still has no impact on the security of supply." (Reporting by Kirsti Knolle; editing by Matthias Williams).
