Power of Siberia to close Sept 22-29 for maintenance

The Power of Siberia gas pipeline that carries Russian gas to China will undergo scheduled maintenance between September 22 and 29, during which time transport operations will be suspended, its operator Gazprom said on September 21.

Gazprom said the terms of the work had been agreed with China's CNPC, which takes gas from Power of Siberia. Preventive maintenance takes place at the pipeline twice a year, in spring and autumn.

Power of Siberia started pumping gas from the Chayandinskoye field in east Siberia in December 2019. The pipeline flowed 4.1bn m3 of gas last year, but at full capacity is set to carry 38bn m3/yr.
