The Nord Stream gas pipeline system endured "unprecedented" damage to three offshore lines on the bed of the Baltic Sea in one day, Nord Stream AG, the network's operator, said on Tuesday.
The AG said it was impossible to estimate when the gas network system’s working capability would be restored.
"The destruction that occurred on the same day simultaneously on three strings of the offshore gas pipelines of the Nord Stream system is unprecedented. It is not yet possible to estimate the timing of the restoration of the gas transport infrastructure," the operator told reporters.
Nord Stream 1 features two parallel lines with a nominal capacity of 27.5 billion cubic meters per year each and started supplying gas directly from Russia to Germany in 2011.
