Sergey Kondratiev, Deputy Head of the Economic Department of the Institute for Energy and Finance, commented to the Kommersant newspaper about the mothballing of equipment at the Gazprom compressor stations.
Sergey Kondratiev considers the conservation of compressor station equipment a logical step: the restoration of the Nord Streams' performance is unlikely to begin in the near future, the transfer of equipment to other compressor stations is also not relevant, since Portovaya uses unique gas compressor units.
According to the expert, conservation work may take up to three to five months, much will depend on who will be involved in this. Conservation costs, Kondratiev adds, are difficult to accurately estimate, but on average they can reach up to 2-3 billion rubles.
